Depth Discontinuities by Pixel-to-Pixel Stereo

  title={Depth Discontinuities by Pixel-to-Pixel Stereo},
  author={Stanley T. Birchfield and Carlo Tomasi},
  journal={International Journal of Computer Vision},
An algorithm to detect depth discontinuities from a stereo pair of images is presented. The algorithm matches individual pixels in corresponding scanline pairs, while allowing occluded pixels to remain unmatched, then propagates the information between scanlines by means of a fast postprocessor. The algorithm handles large untextured regions, uses a measure of pixel dissimilarity that is insensitive to image sampling, and prunes bad search nodes to increase the speed of dynamic programming.
