A discrete spatial representation for lateral motion stereo.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A simple procedure generates the complete minimum depth surface description of a three-dimensional scene that is consistent with a series of images from a laterally translating camera. The internal representation is a discrete map of intervening empty space between the camera and visible surfaces that is the result of occlusion and surface brightness constraints. The effectiveness of this algorithm is demonstrated on real and synthetic test images. -Authors
