Accuracy-Efficiency Evaluation of Adaptive Support Weight Techniques For Local Stereo Matching

By Asmaa Hosni, Margrit Gelautz, and Michael Bleyer

Abstract

Adaptive support weight (ASW) strategies in local stereo matching have recently attracted many researchers due to their compelling results. In this paper, we present an evaluation study that focuses on weight computation methods that have been suggested in the most recent literature. We implemented 9 ASW stereo methods and tested them on all (35) ground truth test stereo image pairs of the Middlebury benchmark. Our evaluation considers both the accuracy of the matching process and the computational efficiency of its GPU implementation. According to our results, high-quality matching results at real-time processing speeds can be achieved by using the guided image filter weights.
