The use of visual information in real time applications such as in robotic pick, navigation, obstacle avoidance etc. has been widely used in many sectors for enabling them to interact with its environment. Robotics require computationally simpler and easy to implement stereo vision algorithms that will provide reliable and accurate results under real time constraint. Stereo vision is a less expensive, passive sensing technique, for inferring the three dimensional position of objects from two or more simultaneous views of a scene and there is no interference with other sensing devices if multiple robots are present in the same environment. Stereo correspondence aims at finding matching points in the stereo image pair based on Lambertian criteria to obtain disparity. The correspondence algorithm will provide high resolution disparity maps of the scene by comparing two views of the scene under the study. By using the principle of triangulation and with the help of camera parameters, depth information can be extracted from this disparity .Since the focus is on real-time application, only the local stereo correspondence algorithms are considered. A comparative study based on error and computational costs are done between two area based algorithms. Evaluation of Sum of absolute Difference algorithm, which is less computationally expensive, suitable for ideal lightening condition and a more accurate adaptive binary support window algorithm that can handle of non-ideal lighting conditions are taken for this study. To simplify the correspondence search, rectified stereo image pairs are used as inputs.
