Stereoscopic System with the Tight Tilted Cameras


Article Preview

Thispaper describes a stereoscopic camera system based on a pair of separate cameras.The cameras are stationary and tilted together. The value of their tiltingangle is derived in regards to their maximal possible utilization of the chiparea with the minimalizing unused parts. It can increase the size of the croppedimage of both left and right images as well as their resolution. The resultswere tested and verified on a real stereoscopic system used for the exploratory, emergency and rescue mobile robots Hercules, Ares and Hardy.
