Resolving stereo matching errors due to repetitive structures using model information
This study regards the problem of incorrect stereo matches due to the occurrence of repetitive structures in the scene. In stereo vision, repetitive structures may lead to “phantom objects” in front of or behind the true scene which cause severe problems in scenarios involving mobile robot navigation or human-robot interaction. To alleviate this problem, we propose a model-based method which is independent of the specific stereo algorithm used. The basic idea is the feedback of application dependent model information into the correspondence analysis procedure without loosing the ability to reconstruct scene parts not described by the model. The employed scene models may either consist of a single plane or (for modelling more complex objects) of several connected planes. An FFT-based detection stage allows the extraction of scene parts displaying repetitive structures and yields the orientation of the model plane, while the plane distance is inferred with a robust optimisation tec...
