Single-pixel imaging (SPI) is an emerging framework that can capture the image of a scene via a single-point detector at a considerably low cost. It measures the projection at the detector of the scene under view with certain patterns. One can reconstruct the image of the scene via post-processing the measurements modulated by the patterns. However, the most commonly-used random patterns are not always desirable in many applications, especially for real-time, resource-limited occasions, due to their high memory requirement and huge cost in software and hardware implementation. In this paper, a chaotic pattern array is proposed for the SPI architecture. Compared with random patterns, the proposed chaotic pattern array can not only promise to increase the capabilities of the SPI device, but can also reduce the memory cost and complexity of hardware implementation in the meantime. Moreover, convincing experiment results are given to illustrate that the proposed pattern array is suitable for single-pixel cameras, as well as other compressive imaging applications. View Full-Text
