This paper is concerned with the development of a novel approach to edge based stereo matching. In the context of an incremental matching strategy we have replaced the traditional hierarchical (coarse-fine) matching by an approach called complexity control base matching. Our implementation of this method allows the user to select interactively features which (given the context provided by previous matches) are most likely to be matched successfully. The selection is done at the resolution of the original image and employs a rich set of features properties (e.g., edge strength, orientation, length, textures, etc.) which may be used alone and in logical combinations. Both feature selection and feature matching algorithms execute at real-time rates and all interactions are via a stereo workstation.
