The pixels of a retina-like sensor are arranged in concentric rings, and the output image is given in log-polar coordinates. Thus, additional residual errors will not be produced when the output image is rotated. Therefore, retina-like sensors have obvious advantages and many prospects for applications in the fields of image rotation and rapid image rotation-elimination. In this study, a theory concerning the image rotation of a retina-like sensor is proposed, and a solution based on the theory is presented and realized for eliminating image rotation caused by camera rotation. The camera rotation angle is obtained using a microelectromechanical systems digital accelerometer and gyroscope; only the readout sequence of each row from static random-access memory must be changed to achieve image rotation-elimination. Several image rotation-elimination experiments have been performed which show that the proposed solution is simple, accurate, and rapid. This rapid image rotation-elimination method can be used in fields that require higher image rotation-elimination processing speeds.
