High resolution 3D information is useful in computer vision. The most common methods of acquiring 3D data are stereo technique and laser range finder, but both of them have some problem in applications. In this paper, a novel stereo image matching algorithm directed by range images is proposed from the view of sensor fusion. At first, the transformation between the range images and camera images is built up, then information extracted from range images is used to constrain the search in stereo matching since the computation of 3D feature points is fast in it. As a result, the workload of point correspondence in stereo can drastically reduce. The experiments have proved the efficiency of our proposed method.
