Claim of US Patent No. 10,992,847

1. An image device for generating a 360 degree depth map, comprising:a plurality of image capturers, wherein an image pair captured by each two adjacent image capturers of the plurality of image capturers is used for generating the 360 degree depth map, and a sum of all view angles of the plurality of image capturers is not less than a sum of 720 degree and all angles required for compensating assembly errors of the plurality of image capturers;
wherein the image pair captured by the each two adjacent image capturers corresponds to image overlapping areas of two images captured by the each two adjacent image capturers, rather than whole areas of the two images captured by the each two adjacent image capturers;
wherein a minimum view angle of each image capturer of the plurality of image capturers is determined by a number of the plurality of image capturers, an angle required for compensating an assembly error of the each image capturer, and 720 degree.
