    Abstract:

Applications: 1. A system and an orthographic image capturing method thereof for counting stacked objects, characterized in that, the method comprising: taking a series of images, by an orthographic image capturing system, said system being operably placed perpendicular to at least one axis of symmetry of the stacked objects, said orthographic image capturing system being operably controlled to move in a rectangular grid fashion to cover the entire dimensions of the stacked objects; stitching. 2. The series of images taken by an orthographic image capturing system, to provide an orthographic image of the scene for counting stacked objects or dimensional measurement, wherein the stitching of the series of images further comprises: sampling of a subset of an image taken, ray bundles, to reconstruct an orthographic image and providing information overlap between the ray bundles to construct a registered image, and processing the stitched images to count the objects or measure dimensions.
Advantages: 1. According to one aspect of the present invention, an orthographic image capturing method for counting stacked objects, characterized in that, the method comprises taking a series of images, by an orthographic image capturing system, said system being operably placed perpendicular to at least one axis of symmetry of the stacked objects, said orthographic image capturing system being operably controlled to move in a rectangular grid fashion to cover the entire dimensions of the stacked objects, stitching, the series of images taken by an orthographic image capturing system, to provide an orthographic image of the scene for counting stacked objects or dimensional measurement, wherein the stitching of the series of images further comprises sampling of a subset of an image taken, ray bundles, to reconstruct an orthographic image and providing information overlap between the ray bundles to construct a registered image, and processing the stitched images to count the objects or measure dimensions. 2. Another aspect of present invention allows an aperture with variable shape and size tailored to requirement, also at much lower cost.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
