Open Access Pixel-Based Adaptive Normalized Cross Correlation for Illumination Invariant Stereo Matching

Stereo matching methods estimate a disparity value of the object as depth information. In general, most stereo matching methods are tested under ideal radiometric conditions. However, those ideal conditions cannot exist in real life. Adaptive normalized cross correlation (ANCC) is a method that is robust to radiometric variation. It estimates significantly accurate disparity values in the illumination variant condition. However, it has a high complexity problem in the cost computation because of the block matching-based method and the bilateral filtering process. In this paper, we propose a pixel-based ANCC using hue and gradient information to improve the computation complexity problem. The results show that the cost computation time is reduced even though error rates corresponding to the exposure and illumination changes have larger variations than those of the ANCC result.

More about this publication?
  • 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.
