A Panorama is a view of a wide region made by accurately stitching many pictures taken by a camera to one another.
ProTrack's MABAT is used to construct high-resolution panoramas of very large areas and angles, using ground-based video sensors (camera, FLIR, etc.).
The resulting panorama can be Single or Multi-Strip, and can cover up to 360 degrees.
MABAT can be operated manually or automatically. It controls the sensor's movement according to a user-defined path.
A Mosaic matches pictures to an existing infrastructure: a previous picture or Orthophoto map. It is mainly suitable for Aerial applications such as updating Orhtophoto maps and alike.
ProTrack's MAROM application is capable of extremely accurate matching of pictures-to-map.
In both applications, a smoothing mechanism eliminates illumination differences between the stitched video frames. Poor source video quality is compensated by noise reduction filter to improve the output video, and a special Locking algorithm ensures images are stitched in the correct locations.
