Abstract-- In this article, we present some development results of
a system that performs mosaicing (or mosaicking) of panoramic
faces. Our objective is to study the feasibility of panoramic face
construction in real-time. To do so, we built a simple acquisition
system composed of 5 standard cameras which, together, can
take simultaneously 5 views of a face at different angles. Then,
we chose an easily hardware-achievable algorithm, consisting
of successive linear transformations, in order to compose a
panoramic face from these 5 views. The method has been tested
on a relatively large number of faces. In order to validate
our system of panoramic face mosaicing, we also conducted a
