Abstract

A technique of artificially creating stereo image pairs from a single monocular image by digital processing is presented. Stereo information perceived as height by the human observer is obtained by extracting features from natural scenes. The features include pixel brightness, edge information, texture, or multispectral information used singly or in combination. The artificial stereo images are intended as an enhancement aid for human perception, and no attempt is made to reproduce reality. Algorithms for obtaining the stereo pair are described, and some experimental results and examples are given.
