Different Modal Stereo: Simultaneous Estimation of Stereo Image Disparity and Modality Translation

Ryota Tanaka, Fumihiko Sakaue, Jun Sato

Abstract

We propose a stereo matching method from the different modal image pairs. In this method, input images are taken in different viewpoints by different modal cameras, e.g., an RGB camera and an IR camera. Our proposed method estimates the disparity of the two images and translates the modality of the input images to different modality simultaneously. To achieve this simultaneous estimation, we utilize two networks, i.e., a disparity estimation method from a single image and modality translation method. Both methods are based on the neural networks, and then we train the network simultaneously. In this training, we focus on several consistencies between the different modal images. By these consistencies, two kinds of networks are effectively trained. Furthermore, we utilize image synthesis optimization on conditional GAN, and the optimization provides quite good results. Several experimental results by open databases show that the proposed method can estimate disparity and translate the modality even if the modalities of the input image pair are different.
