The use of image projection to solve the coincidence problem for stereopsis is presented. A range map is obtained from image features obtained through a new image projection algorithm applied to a pair of stereo images. The use of image projection can significantly reduce the amount of computation and enable one to incorporate methods to solve the occlusion and noise problem present in image data. Preliminary simulation results are presented.
