FAST TEMPLATE MATCHING OF REPETITIVE OBJECTS IN STEREOSCOPY

Abstract

One of the challenges of stereovision is to process images with repetitive objects. In order to calculate the distance to an object, matching of the corresponding points between two images must be done. When repetitive objects exist, matching is not straightforward. Many known stereo methods rely on a uniqueness constraint. A uniqueness constraint assumes that only one correct match exists between stereo images. Some algorithms ignore repetitive objects and omit them in the depth map. We present a method that does not employ a uniqueness constraint, but rather determines whether an object is repetitive and then solves the matching problem by finding a unique object that is in close proximity to the object.
