I work in the Multi - Camera Array lab with two other interns, and two undergrad CIS students. The multi - camera array is, simply put, a bunch of cameras, in our case 6, put in a (or in some cases several) row. When the images produced by the array are processed and stitched together , as a result of an effect deemed synthetic aperture, the resulting image can show objects in focus despite occlusions in the way of what would have been a single camera.
This technology has potential applications in security and numerous other fields (in other words I'm sure someone will think of other applications, who knows maybe I will). Its a pretty cool phenomenon regardless of its application.
So thats the project, and the gist of the lab.
