Computational ghost imaging or single-pixel imaging enables the image formation of an unknown scene using a lens-free photodetector. In this Letter, we present a computational panoramic ghost imaging system that can achieve the full-color panorama using a single-pixel photodetector, where a convex mirror performs the optical transformation of the engineered Hadamard-based circular illumination pattern from unidirectionally to omnidirectionally. To our best knowledge, it is the first time to

It is foreseeable that ghost panorama will have more advantages in imaging and detection in many extreme conditions (e.g., scattering/turbulence, cryogenic temperatures, and unconventional spectra), as well as broad application prospects in the positioning of fast-moving targets and situation awareness for autonomous vehicles.
