A fast method for highresolution stereo matching without exploring the full search space. Plane hypotheses are generated from sparse feature matches. Around each plane, a local plane sweep with +/ 3 disparities levels is performed to establish local disparity hypotheses via SGM using NCC matching costs. Finally, each pixel is assigned to one hypothesis using global optimization, again using SGM.

Anonymous. Using local cues to improve dense stereo matching. CVPR 2015 submission 973.
In stereo matching cost filtering methods and energy minimization algorithms are considered as two different techniques. Due to their global extend energy minimization methods obtain good stereo matching results. However, they tend to fail in occluded regions, in which cost filtering approaches obtain better results. In this paper we intend to combine both approaches with the aim to improve overall stereo matching results.
We propose to perform stereo matching as a twostep energy minimization algorithm. We consider two MRF models: a fully connected model defined on the complete set of pixels in an image and a conventional locally connected model. We solve the energy minimization problem for the fully connected model, after which the marginal function of the solution is used as the unary potential in the locally connected MRF model.
Only gradient component (6D vector) of color images is used

This approach triangulates the polygonized SLIC segmentations of the input images and optimizes a lowerlayer MRF on the resulting set of triangles defined by photo consistency and normal smoothness. The lowerlayer MRF is solved by a quadratic relaxation method which iterates between PatchMatch and Cholesky Decomposition. The lowerlayer MRF is assisted by a upperlayer MRF defined on the set of triangle vertices which exploits local 'visual complexity' cues and encourages smoothness of the vertices' splitting properties. The two layers interact through an Alignment energy term which requires triangles sharing a nonsplit vertex to have their disparities agree on that vertex. Optimization of the whole model is iterated between optimizations of the two layers till convergence where the upperlayer can be solved in closed form.

Compute the matching cost with a convolutional neural network (accurate architecture). Then apply crossbased cost aggregation, semiglobal matching, leftright consistency check, median filter, and a bilateral filter.
DETAILS:
The network is similar to the one described in our CVPR paper differing only in the values of some hyperparameters. The input to the network are two 11 x 11 image patches. Five convolutional layers with 3 x 3 kernels and 112 feature maps extract feature vectors from the input image patches. The two 112length feature vectors are concatenated into a 224length vector which is passed through three fullyconnected layers with 384 units each. The final (fourth) fullyconnected layer projects the output to a single numberthe matching cost. One important addition was the use of data augmentation techniques to increase the size of the training set. We tried to use as much training data as possible. Therefore we combined all of the 2001, 2003, 2005, 2006, and 2014 Middlebury datasets obtaining 60 image pairs. For the newer datasets (2005, 2006, and 2014) we also used several illumination and exposure settings.
A prior disparity image is calculated by matching a set of reliable support points and triangulating between them. A maximum aposterior approach refines the disparities. The disparities for the left and right image are checked for consistency and disparity segments below a size of 50 pixels removed. (Improved results as of 9/14/2015 due to bug fix in colortogray conversion.)

S. Fang and Y. Li. Removed based multiview stereo using windowbased matching method. Submitted to MV&A, 2015.
Removed erroneous corresponding points from stereo pair and only correct corresponding points are kept which are obtained by NCC.
The method generates multiple proposals on absolute and relative disparities from multisegmentations. The proposals are coordinated by pointwise competition and pairwise collaboration within a MRF model. During inference, a dynamic programming is performed in different directions with various step sizes.
We postprocess the depth maps produced by Zbontar & LeCun's MCCNN technique. We use a domain transform to compute an edgeaware variance measure of our confidence in the depth map, and then run our robust bilateral solver on that depth map and confidence with a GemanMcClure loss function.
The MCCNN is computed using the publiclyavailable implementation (https://github.com/jzbontar/mccnn) which using the GPU, and the robust bilateral solver is computed using our CPU implementation which does not use the GPU, and is written in vanilla C++.

Anonymous. Imageguided nonlocal dense matching with threesteps optimization. ISPRS Congress 2016 submission 231.
This paper proposes a new imageguided nonlocal dense matching method with a threestep optimization based on the combination of imageguided methods and energy functionguided methods.
Cost Computation:
Window Size: 5
Weighting Coefficient: 0.3
Truncation Threshold (Census): 15
Truncation Threshold (HOG): 1
Imageguided Nonlocal Matching:
Smooth Term: 6
Penalty Term P1: 0.3
Penalty Term P2: 3
Disparity Interpolation:
Truncation Threshold: 5
Smooth Term: 3
Penalty Term P1: 3
Penalty Term P2: 30
Function Base: 5
An efficient stereo matching algorithm, which applies adaptive smoothness constraints using texture and edge information, is proposed in this work. First, we determine nontextured regions, on which an input image yields flat pixel values. In the nontextured regions, we penalize depth discontinuity and complement the primary CNNbased matching cost with a colorbased cost. Second, by combining two edge maps from the input image and a preestimated disparity map, we extract denoised edges that correspond to depth discontinuity with high probabilities. Thus, near the denoised edges, we penalize small differences of neighboring disparities.
The method uses the MCCNN code for the matching cost computation only.
Compute the matching cost with a convolutional neural network (fast architecture). Then apply crossbased cost aggregation, semiglobal matching, leftright consistency check, median filter, and a bilateral filter.

Our approach is an extension of the ELAS (from Geiger et al.) algorithm. We extract edges and sample our candidate support points along them. For every two consecutive valid support points we create a (straight) line segment. We force the triangulation to include the set of line segments (constrained Delaunay) for a better preservation of the disparity discontinuity at the edges.
Parameters as in the original ELAS algorithm.
For sampling candidate support points along the edge segments:

Anonymous. Morphological processing of stereoscopic image superimpositions for disparity map estimation. ECCV 2016 submission 1308.
The computation of the sparse disparity maps is achieved by means of a 3D diffusion of the costs contained in the disparity space volume. The watershed segmentations of the left and right views control the diffusion process and valid measurements are obtained by crosschecking.
The estimation of the dense disparity maps uses the sparse measurements as control points and is driven by a 3D watershed separating the disparity space volume into foreground and background pixels.

No post processing (no filtering, no holefilling, no interpolation) performed.
The concepts of intrinsic curves were revisited and used for:
 disparity search space reduction, resulting in 83% reduction of the disparity range (individually for each pixel) directly from the original resolution of the image without needing hierarchical search
 reducing the ambiguities due to occluded pixels by integrating occlusion clues explicitly into the global energy function as a soft prior
The final energy minimization was done using semi global approach along eight paths.

L. Li, S. Zhang, X. Yu, and L. Zhang. PMSC: PatchMatchbased superpixel cut for accurate stereo matching. Submitted to IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology, 2016.
A 3D label based method with global optimization at pixel level. A bilayer matching cost is employed by first matching small square windows then aggregate on large irregular windows. Global optimization is carried out by fusing candidate proposals, which are generated from our specific superpixel structure.
We propose a method to combine the predicted surface normal constraint by deep learning. With the selected reliable disparities from stereo matching method and effective edge fusion strategy, we can faithfully convert the predicted surface normal map to a disparity map by solving a least squares system which maintains discontinuity. We use the raw matching cost of MCCNN.

This is a segmentation based stereo matching algorithm using an adaptive multicost approach, which is exploited for obtaining accuracy disparity maps.
Used local adaptive cost aggregation including crossarm support region, guided filtering and disparity subset selection. Refine homogeneous regions using weight propagation with disparity change penalty.
We propose a cost aggregation method that efficiently weave together MSTbased support region filtering and PatchMatchbased 3D label search. We use the raw matching cost of MCCNN.

P. Knöbelreiter, C. Reinbacher, A. Shekhovtsov and T. Pock. Endtoend training of hybrid CNNCRF models for stereo. CVPR 2017.
We propose a novel method for stereo estimation, combining advantages of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) and optimizationbased approaches. The optimization, posed as a conditional random field (CRF), takes local matching costs and consistencyenforcing (smoothness) costs as inputs, both estimated by CNN blocks. To perform the inference in the CRF we use an approach based on linear programming relaxation with a fixed number of iterations. We address the challenging problem of training this hybrid model endtoend. We show that in the discriminative formulation (structured support vector machine) the training is practically feasible. The trained hybrid model with shallow CNNs is comparable to stateoftheart deep models in both time and performance. The optimization part efficiently replaces sophisticated and not jointly trainable (but commonly applied) postprocessing steps by a trainable, wellunderstood model.

Our method is local matching approach using the Guided Filter for cost aggregation. We give appropriate the Guided Filter size for each pixel in input image by the Filter Size Map computed by using the DoG Kernel.
Parameters for Filter Size Map computation:
DoGparam.scalesize = 25 (index of scale space)
DoGparam.mfsize = 1 (window size for Filter Size Map optimization)
Parameters for Guided Filter:
eps = 0.001
Parameters for cost computation:
gamma = 0.11 (Weight of cost)
Parameters for Bilateral Filter in disparity map optimization:
gamma_c = 1
gamma_d = 11
r_median = 19
We propose local expansion moves for estimating dense 3D labels on a pairwise MRF. The data term uses a PatchMatchlike 3D slanted window formulation, where raw matching costs within a window are computed by MCCNNacrt and aggregated using guided image filtering. The smoothness term uses a pairwise curvature regularization term by Olsson et al. 2013.

H. Li, C. Cheng, and L. Zhang. Stereo matching cost based on sparse representation. Submitted to IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology, 2017.
the paper proposes a new matching cost based on sparse
representation theory,which is obtained by solving the convex
quadratic programming (QP) problems and without needing to
learn the dictionary in advance.
We propose a feature ensemble network leveraging deep convolutional neural network to perform matching cost computation and the disparity refinement. For matching cost computation, patchbased network architecture with multisize and multilayer pooling
unit is adopted to learn crossscale feature representations. For disparity refinement, the initial optimal and suboptimal disparity maps are incorporated and diverse base learners are applied.
We propose a robust learningbased method for stereo cost volume computation. We accomplish this by coalescing diverse evidence from a bidirectional matching process via random forest classifiers. We show that our matching volume estimation method achieves similar accuracy to purely datadriven alternatives and that it generalizes to unseen data much better. In fact, we used the same model trained on Middlebury 2014 dataset to submit to the KITTI and ETH3D benchmarks.
We extend the standard BP sequential technique to the fully connected CRF models with the geodesic distance affinity.
Also a new approach to the BP marginal solution is proposed that we call oneviewocclusion detection (OVOD). In contrast to the standard winner takes all (WTA) estimation, the proposed OVOD solution allows to find occluded regions in the disparity map and simultaneously improve the matching result.
As a result we can perform only one energy minimization process and avoid the cost calculation for the second view and the leftright check procedure.
All parameter settings are given in the C++ MS VS project available at the project website.

H. Li and C. Cheng. Adaptive weighted matching cost based on sparse representation. Submitted to IEEE TIP, 2018.
This paper proposes a novel
nondatadriven matching cost for dense correspondence in view
of sparse representation. This new matching cost can separate
the source of impact such as illuminations and exposures, thus
making it more suitable and selective for stereo matching. In
addition, the new matching cost can be used as a adaptive
weight in the process of cost calculation, and can improve the
accuracy of the matching costs by weighting.

Anonymous. Realtime ondemand deep stereo matching on highresolution images. CVPR 2019 submission 2471.
We propose four efficient feature extractors based on convolutional neural networks for stereo matching cost computation. Two of them generate multiscale features with diverse receptive field sizes. These multiscale features are used to compute the corresponding multiscale matching costs. We then determine an optimal cost by combining the multiscale costs using edge information. On the other hand, the other two feature extractors produce uniscale features by combining multiscale features directly through fully connected layers. Finally, after obtaining matching costs using one of the four extractors, we determine optimal disparities based on the crossbased cost aggregation and the semiglobal matching.
We design a fullconvolutional network to generate disparity map as a regression problem. Applying pyramid pooling and skip connection to integrate hierarchical context information.

The method comprises two main steps. First, we use adaptive support weights for local matching. Apart from the color similarity and geometric distance, the adaptive weight distribution favors pixels in the block matching with smaller cost. Besides, we use a multiscale strategy with invalidation criteria to reduce match ambiguity and computational time.
Second, a global interpolation using a variational formulation is carried out. The energy functional penalizes deviations from the local disparity estimation at different scales.
Local approach (DAWA): 23x23 squared window, beta=11, lambda=6, gamma=4, pixel precision 1/4, three scales for multiscale procedure.
Variational model: alpha=1, gamma=5, phi1=30, phi2=15.

Anonymous. Fast feature extraction for stereo matching. ICCV 2019 submission XXXX.
Stereo matching process is attracted numbers of study in recent years. The process is unique and difficult due to visual discomfort occurred which contributed to effect of accuracy of disparity maps. By using multistage technique implemented most of Stereo Matching Algorithm; taxonomy by D. Scharstein and R. Szeliski, in this paper proposed new improvement algorithm of stereo matching by using the effect of Adaptive Weighted Bilateral Filter as main filter in cost aggregation stage which able contribute edgepreserving factor and robust against plain colour region. With some improvement parameters in matching cost computation stage where windows size of sum of absolute different (SAD) and thresholds adjustment was applied and Median Filter as main filter in refinement disparity map’s stage may overcome the limitation of disparity map accuracy. Evaluation on indoor datasets, latest (2014) Middlebury dataset were used to prove that Adaptive Weighted Bilateral Filter effect applied on proposed algorithm resulted smooth disparity maps and achieved good processing time.

C Cheng, H. Li, and L. Zhang. A new stereo matching cost based on twobranch convolutional sparse coding and sparse representation. Submitted to IEEE TIP, 2019.
This paper presents a novel unsupervised stereo matching cost for stereo matching. Specifically, a novel twobranch convolutional sparse coding (CSC) is used to learn the convolution filter bank without ground truth disparity maps. Then, the sparse representations over the learned convolutional filter bank are utilized to measure the similarity between image patches, namely, the stereo matching cost can be computed by measuring the l1 distance between sparse representations of image patches.
