1. An apparatus, comprising:

  • a memory, coupled to a processor, that stores executable modules, comprising;

    an imaging lens module comprising at least one adjustable imaging parameter, and used to image an observed object of an imaging receiver;

    an information processing module used to detect a focus position of the imaging receiver, and determine the at least one adjustable imaging parameter of the imaging lens module according to the focus position; and

    a lens adjustment module used to adjust the imaging lens module according to the at least one adjustable imaging parameter,wherein the information processing module comprises;

    a focus position determination unit used to determine an imaging receiver focus position of the imaging receiver according to at least one optical parameter of the imaging receiver,wherein the focus position determination unit comprises;

    a first focus position determination unit used to obtain the imaging receiver focus position of the imaging receiver according to at least one imaging parameter of at least one optical path between an image collection device and the imaging receiver in response to determining a clearest image presented on an imaging plane of the imaging receiver has been collected by the image collection device, wherein the focus position of the imaging receiver comprises a distance between a focal point of the imaging receiver and the imaging receiver, andwherein the first focus position determination unit comprises;

    the image collection device used to collect an image presented on the imaging plane of the imaging receiver,an adjustable lens unit used to adjust the at least one imaging parameter of the at least one optical path between the imaging receiver and the image collection device to enable the image collection device to obtain the clearest image, andan image processing apparatus used to process the image obtained by the image collection device, and determine the focus position of the imaging receiver according to the at least one imaging parameter of the at least one optical path between the image collection device and the imaging receiver in response to determining that the image collection device has obtained the clearest image and the at least one optical parameter of the imaging receiver.
