Biological inspiration has produced some successful solutions for different imaging systems. Inspired by the compound eye of insects, this paper presents some image process techniques used in the spherical compound eye imaging system. By analyzing the relationship between the system with large field of view (FOV) and each lens, an imaging system based on compound eyes has been designed, where 37 lenses pointing in different directions are arranged on a spherical substrate. By researching the relationship between the lens position and the corresponding image geometrical shape to realize a large FOV detection, the image process technique is proposed. To verify the technique, experiments are carried out based on the designed compound eye imaging system. The results show that an image with FOV over 166° can be acquired while keeping excellent image process quality.
