Stereo Vision for 3D Depth Perception

Jeff Bier, founder of the Embedded Vision Alliance, interviews Goksel Dedeoglu, Manager of Embedded Vision R&D at Texas Instruments. Beginning with a hands-on demonstration of TI's real-time stereo vision prototype on the C6678 Keystone DSP, Jeff and Goksel touch upon various trade-offs in designing a stereo depth camera: the separation between the sensors, image resolution, field-of-view, and finally, the specific requirements of the application domain.

Demonstrating 1080p HD resolution disparity computation at 15 frames per second, Goksel shares how depth information can help detect obstacles for automotive safety, and his experiences on TI System-On-Chips ranging from OMAP and DaVinci application processors all the way to Keystone multicore DSP devices.
