  title={Low-cost Stereovision system (disparity map) for few dollars},
  author={Rakhmatulin Ildar and Eugene Pomazov},
The paper presents an analysis of the latest developments in the field of stereo vision in the low-cost segment, both for prototypes and for industrial designs. We described the theory of stereo vision and presented information about cameras and data transfer protocols and their compatibility with various devices. The theory in the field of image processing for stereo vision processes is considered and the calibration process is described in detail. Ultimately, we presented the developed stereo…
