We present an accurate and efficient stereo matching method using locally shared labels, a new labeling scheme that enables spatial propagation in MRF inference using graph cuts. They give each pixel and region a set of candidate disparity labels, which are randomly initialized, spatially propagated, and refined for continuous disparity estimation. We cast the selection and propagation of locallydefined disparity labels as fusion-based energy minimization. The joint use of graph cuts and locally shared labels has advantages over previous approaches based on fusion moves or belief propagation, it produces submodular moves deriving a subproblem optimality, enables powerful randomized search, helps to find good smooth, locally planar disparity maps, which are reasonable for natural scenes, allows parallel computation of both unary and pairwise costs. Our method is evaluated using the Middlebury stereo benchmark and achieves first place in sub-pixel accuracy.
