The objective of this proposal is the invention of a novel design of the computational lensless camera, which can capture the large amount of image data with an ultra-compact hardware. Specifically, this proposal aims to realize omni-directional and multi-spectral imaging with a small optical hardware whose size is the order of mm^3. The goal of this study is the verification of such imaging capability for the application of the “optical big-data sensor”, and the creation of a new field for the image industry in the era of information technology. The possible application includes the cognitive capsule endoscope, the smart robot with the ultra-compact vision system, the ultra-light wearable sensor, and so on.
