This paper addresses the problem of the propagation of input data errors in the stereovision process and its influence on the quality of reconstructed 3D points. We consider only those particular camera calibration and 3D reconstruction algorithms which employ singular value decomposition (SVD) methods. Using the SVD Jacobian estimation method developed by Papadopoulo and Lourakis, we determine all the partial derivatives of outputs with respect to the inputs and present a set of tests applying them in various stereovision conditions in order to evaluate their impact on the quality of 3D reconstruction.
