This paper presents PAVO (Parallax based Visual Odometry), a new feature-based bi-monocular-cameras visual odometry. It can operate in both short or long range without any switch between mono or stereo algorithms and can be degraded into monocular case. The methodology relies on the use of the parallax information in order to estimate the confidence of each landmark. We have made PAVO to be used on any kind of vehicle or platform and for indoor as well as outdoor environments without tuning. The approach has been validated on popular datasets: KITTI for ground vehicle, EuRoC for UAV but also experimented on bicycle and underwater datasets from ISAE-SUPAERO. The obtained results for the camera only localization show that PAVO gives good trajectory results on KITTI dataset while it is not using any loop-closing, graph optimization and uses the same parameters values for all the experiments.
