omnidirectional

[¦äm·nə·di′rek·shən·əl]
(electronics)
Radiating or receiving equally well in all directions. Also known as nondirectional.

omnidirectional

In all directions. For example, an omnidirectional antenna can transmit or receive signals in all directions. Contrast with directional. See RF.

When compared to the classical omnidirectional ADE configuration, the aperture uniform illumination rises the side lobes close to the main beam, and, due to the increase of the density of rays toward the main reflector edge (see Figure 5), it increases the main reflector spillover and rises the side lobe level behind the main reflector, particularly at 140[degrees] < [theta] < 180[degrees] (see Figure 7).
One other important issue to be noticed in the design to provide omnidirectional (or low gain variation) is that the slots should have not only physical circular symmetry on the circular waveguide but also the fields on the slots should have circular symmetry.
In contrast, more recently, the systems that provide omnidirectional visual information [24] have gained popularity thanks, mainly, to the great quantity of information they provide the robot with, as they usually have a field of view of 360 deg around the robot [25].
