abstract

This paper proposes multiview version of autostereoscopic display FLOATS (Fresnel Lens based Optical Apparatus for Touchable-distance Stereoscopy), which combines generation of floating real image and parallax presentation to show realistic 3-D image within the viewer's reach. Earlier versions of FLOATS have required a head tracker, physical motion control of filters or mirrors, and transformation of image in accordance with the viewer's motion to keep on presenting different images to each eye. To do away with these requirements, we propose two methods which realize multiview presentation to the viewer. One method is to use multiple LCD panels and multiple fixed mirrors instead of mobile mirrors. The other method is to use mutiple projectors, fly-eye lenses, and fresnel lenses. Though the former system doesn't cost much, it is not practical to present more than 10 views. In the latter system it is practical to present more than 30 views, which can realize presentation of both horizontal and vertical parallax. With this technology the viewers can perceive undistorted 3-D space from any angle, which makes it possible for multiple viewers to observe 3-D image at consistent position from different angles at the same time.
