Previous approaches to accomplishing the task of computing binocular disparity quickly have included the use of dedicated hardware and a tradeo of speed against pixel resolution. A software-based stereo-matcher is reported which produces results quickly whilst retaining sub-pixel accuracy. The process of foveation is applied to a scale-space matching algorithm to produce disparity maps of spatially non-linear resolution. Results are presented evaluating the accuracy of the algorithm and also runtime performance of a Java-based implementation executing on standard hardware. </ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
