According to Richard G. Baraniuk, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rice, who recently delivered a presentation at the annual Milestone Integration Platform Symposium (MIPS) in San Antonio, the idea behind FlatCam was really about rethinking how cameras take pictures and whether it’s possible to change their form factor.
“There’s this whole area of computational imaging that really enables new ways to think about sensing all kinds of different phenomena and the fundamental tradeoff that it allows you to make is between computation on a computer and hardware,” Baraniuk says. “We asked the question of whether it was possible to use computations in order to replace, in this case, the lens in a camera. And it turns out, that can be done.”
Baraniuk says that FlatCam was developed as a general purpose concept but there are obviously some sweet spots for the technology in addition to security, including the medical and scientific fields. However, he added that it’s not supposed to be a panacea for any particular market.
