Abstract:We describe a robot vision system which produces a depth map in real time by means of motion parallax or kinetic depth. A video camera is held by a robot which moves so that a given point in space is kept fixated on the centre of the camera's imaging surface. The optical flow is calculated in a Datacube Max Video system and a full-frame depth map is produced 12.5 times per second. Calculated depths show an average 10 117760iscrepancy with measured depths over 7 nonconsecutive images.
