A multi-resolution image matching technique based on translation invariant discrete multi-wavelet transform followed by a coarse to fine matching strategy is presented. The technique addresses the estimation of optimal corresponding points and the corresponding disparity maps in the presence of occlusion, ambiguity and illuminative variations in the two perspective views taken by two different cameras or at different lighting conditions. The problem of occlusion and ambiguity is addressed explicitly by a geometric optimization approach along with the uniqueness constraint whereas the illuminative variation is dealt with by using windowed normalized correlation on the discrete multi-wavelet coefficients.
