A fundamental problem faced by stereo vision algorithms is that of determining correspondences between two images which comprise a stereo pair. This paper presents work towards the development of a new matching algorithm, based on the rank transform. This algorithm makes use of both area-based and edge-based information, and is therefore referred to as a hybrid algorithm. In addition, this algorithm uses a number of matching constraints, including the novel rank constraint. Results obtained using a number of test pairs show that the matching algorithm is capable of removing most invalid matches. The accuracy of matching in the vicinity of edges is also improved
