In this paper, we deal with a stereo matching problem. It is well known that finding the corresponding points in stereo image data is one of the major issues in the field of robot vision system. We propose a new algorithm for stereo matching using optimal control technique. Our contribution is proposing the virtual control model to process image information. By introduction of the virtual control model, image information is embedded into a performance index. Therefore, the stereo matching problem can be solved as an optimal control problem. Finally, we confirm effectiveness of our approach through some experimental results.
