stereopsis

The combined vision of two eyes (binocular vision). Stereopsis is one of the ways depth is perceived by the human brain. Other methods include the larger size of close objects and smaller size of distant objects even with one eye (monocular vision). The term comes from "stereo," which means "solid" and "3-dimensional" plus "opsis," meaning sight. See 3D visualization and stereoscopic 3D.

For this, three different disparity situations were considered: only horizontal disparity, only vertical disparity, and both horizontal and vertical disparities exist.
(2), we can get the relation between depth value D and horizontal disparity d to Eq.
where x = [(x + [d.sup.n-1.sub.x](x), y + [d.sup.n-1.sub.y](x)).sup.T], with [d.sub.n-1.sub.x] being the horizontal disparity at level n - 1 and [d.sup.n-1.sub.y] the vertical disparity at level n-1.
The visual system should be able to detect the horizontal disparity of the tilted stimulus, which is independent of stimulus orientation.
