Abstract:
(EN) This technology relates to an imaging device, an imaging method, and a program which make it possible to perform appropriate exposure control and appropriately capture an image of a desired subject. This imaging device is provided with an imaging unit including a plurality of pixels having different spectral characteristics, and an exposure control unit that sets information relating to exposure control for the plurality of pixels according to specification information specifying the type of an object to be measured. Alternatively, the imaging device is provided with an imaging unit including a plurality of pixels having different spectral characteristics, and an exposure control unit that sets information relating to exposure control for the plurality of pixels on the basis of the respective output prediction values of the plurality of pixels based on the spectral characteristic of an object to be measured. This technology is applicable, for example, to an imaging device for sensing vegetation.
(FR) La présente technologie concerne un dispositif d'imagerie, un procédé d'imagerie et un programme qui permettent d'effectuer une commande d'exposition appropriée et de capturer de manière appropriée une image d'un sujet souhaité. Le dispositif d'imagerie est pourvu d'une unité d'imagerie comprenant une pluralité de pixels ayant des caractéristiques spectrales différentes, et d'une unité de commande d'exposition qui définit des informations relatives à la commande d'exposition pour la pluralité de pixels en fonction des informations de spécification spécifiant le type d'un objet à mesurer. En variante, le dispositif d'imagerie est pourvu d'une unité d'imagerie comprenant une pluralité de pixels ayant des caractéristiques spectrales différentes, et une unité de commande d'exposition qui définit des informations relatives à la commande d'exposition pour la pluralité de pixels sur la base des valeurs de prédiction de sortie respectives de la pluralité de pixels basées sur la caractéristique spectrale d'un objet à mesurer. Cette technologie peut être appliquée, par exemple, à un dispositif d'imagerie pour détecter une végétation.
(JA) 本技術は、適切な露光制御を行い、所望とされる被写体を適切に撮像することができるようにする撮像装置、撮像方法、並びにプログラムに関する。 分光特性が異なる複数の画素を含む撮像部と、測定対象の種類を特定する特定情報に応じて、前記複数の画素に対する露光の制御に関する情報を設定する露光制御部とを備える。または分光特性が異なる複数の画素を含む撮像部と、測定対象に関する分光特性に基づく前記複数の画素の各々の出力予測値に基づいて、前記複数の画素に対する露光の制御に関する情報を設定する露光制御部とを備える。本技術は、例えば、植生をセンシングする撮像装置に適用できる。
