The 360° images or regular 2D images look appealing in Virtual Reality yet they fail to represent depth and how the depth can be used to give an experience to the user from two dimensional images. We proposed an approach for creating stereogram from computer generated depth map using approximation algorithm and later use these stereo pairs for giving a complete experience on VR along with forward and backward navigation using mobile sensors. Firstly the image is being segmented into two images from which we generated our disparity map and afterwards generate the depth image from it. After the creation of the depth image, stereo pair which is the left and right image for the eyes were created. Acquired image from the previous process then handled by Cardboard SDK for VR support used in the Android devices using Google Cardboard headset. With the VR image in the stereoscopic device, we use the accelerometer sensor of the device to determine the movement of the device while head mounted. Unlike the other VR navigation systems offered (HTC Vibe, Oculus) using external sensors, our approach is to use the built-in sensors for motion processing. Using the accelerometer reading from the movement, the user will be able to move around virtually in the constructed image. The results of this experiment are the visual changes of the image displayed in VR according to the viewer’s physical movement.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
