Goksel Dedeoglu, manager of the Embedded Vision team at Texas Instruments' Systems and Applications R&D Center, presents the "Embedded 3D Stereo Vision: How it Works, How to Implement It, and How to Use It" tutorial within the "Image Sensors and Front-End Image Processing" technical session at the April 2013 Embedded Vision Summit. This tutorial is intended for technical audiences interested in learning about stereo vision for 3D depth perception.
Starting with a brief description and comparison of depth sensing modalities, Dedeoglu presents how a stereo vision camera works and discusses its advantages and limitations. He then demonstrates TI Stereo Module (TISMO), which is a DSP-optimized S/W solution for embedded applications. Dedeoglu demonstrates how stereo depth information can help in various computer vision problems, including motion detection for video security, and obstacle detection for automotive and industrial safety.
