Developing a perception system for applications of planetary intervention and for others which require accurate 3D measurements.

Classical Methods:

* Advantages:
fast; points of reference known with very high precision

* shortcomings:

Key Ideas of Our Technique:

* Reinforce the epipolar constraint
by using matches between the cameras
* Enlarge the validity volume of the calibration
by using data from both calibration apparatus and the environment
(This is possible because the cameras are rigidly attached to each other.)
