article description
The accuracy of depth judgments based upon binocular disparity or relative motion (motion parallax and object rotation) was compared in two experiments. A third experiment on stereoscopic depth constancy (the scaling of disparity information with distance) is also reported. In the first experiment, depth judgments were recorded for computer simulations of cones specified by binocular disparity, motion parallax, or stereokinesis (illusory structure from motion). In the second experiment, judgments were recorded for real cones in a structured environment, with depth information from binocular disparity, motion parallax, or object rotation. In both experiments, judgments from binocular disparity information were quite accurate, but judgments based upon geometrically equivalent or more robust motion information reflect poor recovery of quantitative depth information. In the third experiment, stereoscopic depth constancy was demonstrated for distances of 1 to 3 m using real objects in a well-illuminated, structured viewing environment in which monocular depth cues (e.g., shading) were minimized.
