A stereoscopic ranging system is currently being developed as a key source of positional information for an underwater ROV station keeping system. Advancements in PC technology make it possible to use a relatively simple image capture card and a PC as a platform for the fast capture and processing of video images. We make use of the extensive capabilities of fast data buses and the high processing power of fast PCs with Pentium II or III processors. Using this approach we are developing an image processing system that is largely manufacturer independent and promises a good path for both hardware and software upgrading in the future.
