This study tackles the image color to gray conversion problem. The aim was to understand the conversion qualities that can improve the accuracy of results when the grayscale conversion is applied as a pre-processing step in the context of vision algorithms, and in particular dense stereo matching. We evaluated many different state of the art color to(More)

Alternative solutions, like the projection of a photographic dataset acquired in a different stage, are still dependent on the quality of the initial images. The(More)
