Abstract
Stereo imaging is one of the methods to get an estimate about depth distance of various objects in the scene from the camera. This paper presents the process involved in developing a stereo imaging module for use on a robot to plan paths and movements, and for avoiding obstacles. The module is implemented using the open source computer vision library OpenCV. This module works in real-time and can deal with dynamic scenes to a fair extent.
