Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR INCREASING COVERAGE OF AN AREA CAPTURED BY AN IMAGE CAPTURING DEVICE
Abstract:
A system and a method of increasing an area continuously captured by an image capturing device directed at said area are provided herein. The method may include the following steps: directing said image capturing device at said area in a specified image orientation; receiving momentary orientation measurements of said image capturing device; calculating in real-time, based on said measurements, a shift in orientation of said image capturing device relative to said specified image orientation; providing instructions for rotation in real-time of said image capturing device, to compensate for said shift; and rotating, using a rotation mechanism, said image capturing device based on said instructions, wherein the image capturing device is mounted on a non-stationary platform moving in a periodic pattern.
