Hi guys,

I want to create a little robot with a stereo camera (2x logitech c270). I made single calibration on both cameras (obtaining an error of 0.40 / 0.60 with 40 images each) then a stereo calibration (error of 0.5).

What I don't undestand is that in different tutorials, it is said that using the StereoBM.compute() should give you directly the depth map (example here). But I can't get anything else than the shape of my objects :

My StereoBM parameters are :

stereo = StereoBM.create(224, 7);

Am I missing something or there is some more work to do to get depth map from disparity mat? Thanks!

With your black and white image is difficult to say something. I can suppose that disparity is 400 for bottle (right image bottle is at x=200 and in left image 600). In your disparity image pixel value must be 400. it should be a 16 bit images
