Abstract
Binocular stereo, vergence stereo, and depth from focus have been extensively studied in isolation in the past for extraction of depth. These passive approaches have their own strengths and limitations. All these cues differ in their input image requirements, computational requirements, and the quality and nature of results they provide. None of them by themselves is sufficient to reliably extract depth information from a wide variety of scenes. It is evident an integrated system which employs multiple cues and exploits their strengths would be most critical for developing a robust depth extraction system. Active vision paradigm allows us to develop such a system where various depth cues cooperate to derive the 3-D structure of the scene. In this, the integration would be accomplished by active intelligent control of the acquisition processes tightly coupled to the analysis of image data.
