360-degree cameras are revolutionising a multitude of applications and providing a huge boost for the development of others related to Virtual/Augmented/Mixed Reality. Virtual Reality (VR) is aimed to provide immersive experiences, where higher realism of captured or reproduced visual scenes and means for natural interaction with 3D content are essential.
However, there are still several limitations and issues necessary to address in this area such as distortions, panoramas stitching, depth estimation, and degrees of freedom provided to the final user.
The datasets presented by CIVIT provide 4 or 8 different fisheye views generated from a Nokia OZO. This allows testing of multiple algorithms like depth estimation or panoramas stitching.
