An accurate and reliable stereo matching algorithm incorporating the rank constraint
Banks, Jasmine, Bennamoun, Mohammed, Kubik, Kurt, & Corke, Peter (1999) An accurate and reliable stereo matching algorithm incorporating the rank constraint. In 7th International Symposium on Intelligent Robotic Systems, Coimbra, Portugal, pp. 23-31.
A fundamental problem faced by stereo vision algorithms is that of determining correspondences between two images which comprise a stereo pair. This paper presents work towards the development of a new matching algorithm, based on the rank transform. This algorithm makes use of both area-based and edge-based information, and is therefore referred to as a hybrid algorithm. In addition, this algorithm uses a number of matching constraints,including the novel rank constraint. Results obtained using a number of test pairs show that the matching algorithm is capable of removing a significant proportion of invalid matches. The accuracy of matching in the vicinity of edges is also improved.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
