Wavefront Coding combines non-traditional optics with modern electronics and signal processing algorithms to provide imaging capabilities prior optical systems could not achieve. This approach provides a unique opportunity to optimally design computational imaging systems for visual applications and task-based applications. Goals and limitations for visual systems are vastly different than the issues faced in machine or robotic vision, and such differences can be exploited through the computational nature of Wavefront
