Stereoscopic video is the process by which video technology is used to capture and display three dimensional (3D) images and hence, creating the illusion of depth in an image. A stereoscopic video system called Telepresence Viewing System (TVS) for use with Underwater Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) has been developed by Robotics Research Centre (RRC) of Nanyang Technological University (NTU) to improve manoeuvrability and performance of underwater ROV. A good stereoscopic video system will enhance the performance of operators. This project primarily evaluates the performance of the 3D stereoscopic video system in turbid underwater environment by quantifying the degradation of 3D effects and correlates it with the levels of turbidity. This research was motivated by the fact that there is no previous work with data concerning the human performance and the stereoscopic video system when the RRC‟s ROV is operating in turbid underwater environment. The research presented here was to study the potential effect of varying the convergence angle, brightness and additional lighting of the cameras and ROV in underwater on human‟s visual perception and visual comfort.
