Research team of Professor Yoon Kuk-Jin developed a technique for robust stereo matching which enables computing accurate disparity map in uncontrolled environment. Unlike indoor environments, it is hard to compute disparity map which is calculated as the difference between the pixel values of the two images since the image is either too bright or dark in uncontrolled outdoor environments. In this work, research team analyzes the characteristics of various confidence measures in the random forest framework, trains a random forest using the selected confidence measures, presents a confidence-based matching cost modulation scheme and applies the proposed modulation scheme to popularly used algorithms. The proposed methods exhibited accurate and robust results in public datasets and in challenging outdoor datasets.
