Combinaton of Multiple Stereo Systems

Parallel use of stereo systems

Apply­ing mul­ti­ple sys­tems enables the enlarge­ment of the FOV and/or to increase the spa­tial res­o­lu­tion. Dif­fer­ent meth­ods are avail­able for com­bin­ing their results and coor­di­nates by the VIC soft­ware. A unique method with high­er accu­ra­cy than  onven­tion­al ones enables to com­bine any obser­va­tion direc­tions — in this exam­ple, side by side sys­tems (right image) — even with­out an over­lap of the FOV, which is required for the con­ven­tion­al stitch­ing method. This dou­bles the spa­tial resolution.



Flexibility in combination of multiple systems

Here, opposed sys­tems oper­ate at dif­fer­ent field of view ranges. Click for the high-res­o­lu­tion mea­sure­ment of prin­ci­pal strain ε1 and ε2 tak­en from the backside.
