An investigation of long-range stereopsis

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • Our project will be the first to examine long range stereoscopic perceptions of depth, slant and curvature, as well as perceived changes in slant and curvature on the ground. The research is also theoretically significant and novel in exploring the scaling of stereopsis by monocular distance cues such as the ground plane, perspective and horizon. Determining the useful range of stereopsis also has many practical applications e.g. for understanding vehicle guidance (eg helicopter landing), as well as natural locomotion and route planning. The research is possible because of innovative equipment designed to allow for fast changes in remote targets.
