A COMPARISON OF TECHNIQUES FOR ESTIMATING DEPTH USING STEREO PAIRS Abstract: Disparity maps can provide a visual estimate of depth information generated by a pair of stereo images. The goal when producing disparity maps is to achieve a smooth and detailed map while minimizing error and maximizing efficiency. Three methods of varying complexity are explored to demonstrate and compare their results and efficiency on the Middlebury stereo test set [5].
