For the omnidirectional measurement, the collected images of large-angle fisheye lens need to be corrected and spliced before next procedure, which is complicated and inaccurate. In this paper, a direct position measurement method based on fisheye imaging is proposed for large-angle imaging without any image correcting and splicing. A nonlinear imaging system of fisheye lens is used to acquire the sequence images based on its distortion model, and the critical distortion features of the sequence images are extracted, which contains the position information. And a BP neural network is trained with the extracted image features of previous standard experimental dataset. Finally, the trained BP neural network is employed to measure the object’s distance. Experimental results demonstrate show that the proposed method achieves simple close-object distance measurement with high robustness and a measurement error of ±0.5cm. The proposed method overcomes the shortcomings of conventional measurement methods and expands the fisheye applications filed for omnidirectional measurement.
