© 2019 IEEE.In recent years, especially in industrial automation systems, in order for robots to understand their distances and positions according to the target, close to human vision, computer vision systems are needed. Computer vision close to human vision can only be created using stereo cameras. In this study, a computer vision system is developed using the stereo camera system for measuring object distances. In the study, first of all, for the distance measurement, the distance of the face images obtained from the stereo camera system to the screen is calculated. In measuring the distances of the face images to screen, the disparity maps are first extracted and the face region is detected. Afterwards, the distance measurements are performed on the obtained images in the stereo camera system on account of calculating the shifts between the frames. In the experimental studies, the actual distance values such as 71, 74, 75, 79, 110, 125, and 115 of the face to the screen are measured as 70, 72, 73, 77, 97, 120, 132 cm by proposed system, respectively. When the experimental results are examined, we can say that the proposed computer vision system is successful in distance measurement using stereo camera view.
