Stereo vision has numerous applications in robotics, graphics, inspection and other areas. A prime application, one which has driven work on stereo in our laboratory, is teleconferencing in which the use of a stereo webcam already makes possible various transformations of the video stream. These include digital camera control, insertion of virtual objects, background substitution, and eye-gaze correction.
