Abstract
Q-DOT proposes to develop a custom, charge-coupled device imager to work in conjunction with an innovative lens already designed and built by Q-DOT. The imager will exploit the characteristics of a variable focal lens to provide both a detailed, narrow field-of-view image seamlessly combined with a lower resolution, wide field-of-view image in the same display. The lens and imager combination is particularly suited to create a virtual reality telerobotic display while using minimum transmission bandwidth. The lens and imager, together, mimic the functioning of the human vision system.
