Abstract : D applications are very popular nowadays. They allow to bring new sensations (e.g., cinema, gaming, etc) and new ways for analyzing data (e.g., video-surveillance, pattern recognition, etc). The large availability of 3D data ia better understanding of human 3D perception in order to improve the quality of 3D visual data, increase the visual comfort and avoid visual fatigue and visual illness. In this paper, we explore the binocular perception through its various indices. The focus is put on the binocular energy and its evolution with regard to image impairments. Two types of cells are explored, that is, simple and complex cells responsible of the sensory fusion in the visual cortex. A model is proposed for these cells in order to estimate the binocular energy from color stereo-pairs. The integration of stereoscopic constraints such as unicity, coherence and occlusion allows to refine the proposed model described previously by taking into account the occluded and the non-occluded information. A deep experimentation demonstrates the efficiency of the described modeling. The estimated binocular energy presents a correlation with the impairment level caused by compression or noise.
