Estimation of the blurring effect is very important for many imaging systems. This letter reports an idea to efficiently and robustly compute the blurring parameter on certain stripe edges. Two formulas are found to determine the degree of imaging blur only by calculating the area sizes under the corresponding profile curves, without the need for deconvolution or transformation over the image. The method can be applied to many applications such as vision sensing of scene depth. A 3-D vision system is taken as an implementation instance.
