I've now finished the first version of my stereoscopic vision demo
for Windows. Formerly this only worked under linux, but I've been
able to make my way through the jungle of DirectShow to produce a
Windows version of the same thing.
The windows version performs significantly faster, since there are no
problems with support for the camera image compression.
Since the stereo vision system doesn't rely upon motion detection or
having the cameras in a fixed position it would be particularly
suitable for mobile robotics. You could use it for visual obstacle
avoidance, but my first thought is to use it to produce a more
reliable face location system. I've tested the system on my 1.7GHz PC
and I think that sort of processing speed is probably the minimum for
