Multiple cameras have been used to get a view of a large area. In some cases, the cameras are placed so that their views are overlapped to get a more complete view. 3D information of the overlapping areas that are covered with two or three cameras can be obtained by stereo vision methods. By shifting the shutter timings of cameras and using our pseudo stereo vision method, we can output 3D information faster than 30 fps. In this paper, we propose a pseudo stereo vision method using three cameras with different shutter timings. Using three cameras, two types of shutter timings are discussed. In three different shutter timings, 90 points of 3D position for a sec are obtained because the proposed method can output 3D positions at every shutter timing of three cameras. In two different shutter timings, it is possible to calculate the 3D position at 60 fps with better accuracy.
