This paper defines Wide Angle Foveated (WAF) imaging. A proposed model combines Cartesian coordinate system, a log-polar coordinate system, and a unique camera model composed of planar projection and spherical projection for all-purpose use of a single imaging device. The central field-of-view (FOV) and intermediate FOV are given translation-invariance and, rotation and scale-invariance for pattern recognition, respectively. Further, the peripheral FOV is more useful for camera's view direction control, because its image height is linear to an incident angle to the camera model's optical center point. Thus, this imaging model improves its usability especially when a camera is dynamically moved, that is, overt-attention. Moreover, simulation results of image extraction show advantages of the proposed model, in view of its magnification factor of the central FOV, accuracy of scale-invariance and flexibility to describe other WAF vision sensors.
