Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to describe recent research into biomimetic imaging and vision systems.

Design/methodology/approach

Following an introduction, this paper discusses a range of biomimetic imaging and vision system research activities and their potential applications. Brief conclusions are drawn.

Findings

This shows that biomimetic design concepts, many based on insect vision, are being applied widely to prototype imaging systems. These exhibit features such as wide fields of view, hyperacuity and infra‐red detection and offer prospects to enhance the capabilities of such systems in a wide range of applications.

Originality/value

This paper provides details of recent biomimetic imaging research, which has potential in a range of robotic and other applications.
