Abstract

Various algorithms have been proposed for estimating camera distance from objects in digital stereo pair videos and images. Existing algorithms assume that digital images were taken with pan and tilt cameras or assume that the angles between the cameras and the object are known. The algorithm that we are proposing has the ability to calculate distance from the camera plane to the object plane, where the cameras do not have the ability to pan and tilt nor the angles between the cameras and the object are known beforehand.
