Stanford has created a 4D camera that can capture 140 degrees of information. The new technology would be the perfect addition to robots and autonomous vehicles. The 4D camera relies on light field photography which allows it to gather such a wide degree of information
How do 4D cameras work?
Light field photography captures the same image as a conventional 2D camera plus information about the direction and distance of the light hitting the lens, creating what’s known as a 4D image.
