The Small Vision System (SVS) is an efficient software implementation of the SRI stereo algorithms, running on standard PC or Unix hardware. These algorithms are 3 to 4 times faster than similar algorithms, and have high-quality filtering to reject false stereo matches. Coupled with stereo cameras and a framegrabber, it is a complete, low-cost development environment for realtime stereo applications.
The SVS is now available as a software package from Videre Design.
You can use the SVS with your own cameras and framegrabber. Alternatively, a low-cost stereo head (STH-V2) and a new, high-performace digital megapixel head (STH-MD1) are available from Videre Design as convenient method for experimenting with realtime stereo.
