Interactions between visual depth cues

Show Summary Details


Different sources of information (cues) about visual depth are combined in various ways. Information provided by different cues may be added, or a weighted mean may be derived. Sometimes two cues are attended to in alternation. One depth cue may resolve the ambiguity of another cue or extend the range over which depth is detected. A conflict between two cues may be resolved by trading one cue against the other, or one cue may be ignored. This chapter reviews all these issues.

Keywords: cue interactions; cue weighting; cue trading
