Pandora plugin to optimize the cost volume with the LibSGM library

Project description

Pandora plugin libSGM

Semi-Global Matching algorithm plugin for .



Pandora stereo matching framework is designed to provide some state of the art stereo algorithms and to add others one as plugins.
This Pandora plugin aims to optimize the cost volume following Semi-Global Matching algorithm, defined by [Hirschmuller], with the libSGM library .


pandora_plugin_libsgm is available on Pypi and can be installed by:

pip install numpy
pip install pandora_plugin_libsgm

This command will installed required dependencies as Pandora and libSGM.


Let's refer to Pandora's readme or online documentation for further information about Pandora general functionalities.

More specifically, you can find :


Pandora - A stereo matching framework
libSGM - C++/python implementation of semi-global matching algorithm
