Robots must currently utilize laser range finders and various other sensors to detect objects around them. The vision systems currently available allow for basic object recognition, but they have yet to replicate the 3D vision capabilities that are only possible with two human eyes.

Purdue University researchers have developed a technology that would allow robotic machines to map their environment using only two cameras, emulating the process behind human vision. This approach eliminates the need for additional range sensors letting the robot identify the ground and map its environment with little exploration, thereby reducing the time and complexity of robotic sight.

Advantages:
-Emulates human vision

Potential Applications:
-Computer Technology
-Robotics
-Image Processing
