This paper presents a method of improving the estimation of distances between an autonomous harvesting robot and plants with ripe fruits by using the vision system based on five cameras. The system is called Equal Baseline Multiple Camera Set (EBMCS). EBMCS has some features of a camera matrix and a camera array. EBMCS is regarded as a set of stereo cameras for estimating distances by obtaining disparity maps and depth maps. This...
Influence of Aggregating Window Size on Disparity Maps Obtained from Equal Baseline Multiple Camera Set (EBMCS)
This paper is concerned with obtaining disparity maps on the basis of images from Equal Baseline Multiple Camera Set (EBMCS). EBMCS consists of a central camera and side cameras. Algorithms for obtaining disparity maps with the use of EBMCS take advantage of aggregating windows similarly to stereo matching algorithms for a stereo camera, a camera matrix or a camera array. The paper analyzes the influence of aggregating window size...
This paper presents a lightweight 3D vision system called Equal Baseline Camera Array (EBCA). EBCA can work in different light conditions and it can be applied for measuring large range of distances. The system is a useful alternative to other known distance measuring devices such as structured-light 3D scanners, time-of-flight cameras, Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) devices and structure from motion techniques. EBCA can be...
