Abstract : This paper defines a new model for the Kinetic Depth Effect for multi-dot stimuli. The calculation is performed in a cooperative-competitive network, described as a relaxation labeling process (RLP). The process involves a local iterative computation to best meet the constraints indicated by image cues to depth. Given a constraint that prefers inter-Dot distances in 3D to remain constant (local rigidity), the model becomes a local parallel computation of the Ullman incremental rigidity scheme. Several simulations of the model are described, including some where additional cues are combined with the changing dot position cue. Keywords: Human vision, Information extraction.
