In this paper, we present a new real-time depth estimation method using the stereo color camera and the ToF depth sensor. First, we obtain the initial depth information from the ToF depth sensor. Exploiting the initial depth information to narrow the disparity range by performing 3-D warping from the position of the ToF camera to the position of the stereo camera due to accelerating the algorithm. We construct the cost volume by calculating intensity difference and truncated absolute difference of gradients. After narrowing the disparity range, we aggregate the cost volume. Experimental results show that the proposed method can represent the disparity detail and improve the quality in the vulnerable areas of stereo matching.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
