Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, we propose an algorithm for generating panoramic videos using fixed multiple cameras. We estimate a background image from each camera. Then we calculate perspective relationships between images using extracted feature points. To eliminate stitching errors due to different image depths, we process background images and foreground images separately in the overlap regions between adjacent cameras by projecting regions of foreground images selectively. The proposed algorithm can be used to enhance the efficiency and convenience of wide-area surveillance systems.
