A compound eye is a visual organ found in arthropods such as insects and crustaceans. It may consist of thousands of ommatidia, which are tiny independent. Compound Eye enables machines to understand their surroundings in 3D and in real time using only passive sensors like cameras. Apposition compound eyes are composed of numerous identically repeated visual units, the ommatidia. Recognizable externally as facets, they. A compound eye is characterized by a variable number (a few to thousands) of small eyes, ommatidia, which function as independent photoreception. Compound eyes are made up of many optical elements arranged around the outside of a convex supporting structure. They fall into two broad categories with. The vision system of arthropods such as insects and crustaceans is based on the compound-eye architecture, consisting of a dense array of. The compound eyes, a plesiomorphic character of all arthropods during the last half billion years developed a high diversity of adaptations, in. However, compound eyes have inferior resolution when compared with the camera-type eyes of vertebrates, owing to inherent structural constraints. During the last years, the number of known optical types of compound eye has grown from one to at least seven. With this increasing knowledge we have. A newly created biologically inspired compound eye is helping scientists understand how insects use their compound eyes to sense an object.
