I've now finished the first version of my stereoscopic vision demo for Windows. Formerly this only worked under linux, but I've been able to make my way through the jungle of DirectShow to produce a Windows version of the same thing.

The windows version performs significantly faster, since there are no problems with support for the camera image compression.

Since the stereo vision system doesn't rely upon motion detection or having the cameras in a fixed position it would be particularly suitable for mobile robotics. You could use it for visual obstacle avoidance, but my first thought is to use it to produce a more reliable face location system. I've tested the system on my 1.7GHz PC and I think that sort of processing speed is probably the minimum for practical applications.
