Stereo and Eye Movement

Unknown author (1988-01-01)

We describe a method to solve the stereo correspondence using controlled eye (or camera) movements. These eye movements essentially supply additional image frames which can be used to constrain the stereo matching. Because the eye movements are small, traditional methods of stereo with multiple frames will not work. We develop an alternative approach using a systematic analysis to define a probability distribution for the errors. Our matching strategy then matches the most probable points first, thereby reducing the ambiguity for the remaining matches. We demonstrate this algorithm with several examples.
