Multi-view computer vision systems can be categorized by several aspects of the solution. There are multiple problem types in these resulting categories, where different solution methods are available. This article introduces the challenges of the field by showing a categorization of the multi-camera computer vision systems, and by reviewing some of the main challenges. At the end of each challenge description, available techniques are pointed out for research.
