We use Sarnoff’s next-generation video processor, the PVT-200, to demonstrate real-time algorithms for stereo processing, obstacle detection, and terrain estimation from stereo cameras mounted on a moving vehicle. Sarnoff’s stereo processing and obstacle detection capabilities are currently being used in several Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) programs,(More)
