### Nagel, 1987, On the estimation of optical flow - attributes of this method

I know Horn and Schunck and Lucas-Kanade (81) as optic flow methods. But Nagel is way to complex for me. Anyway I have an blackbox implementation of this method but would like to understand the ...

### How to calculate Walsh hadamard transform for image patches of odd sizes?

I was reading this paper on optical flow, which as apart of the algorithm makes use Walsh-Hadamard transform on image patches of size 2r+1. So far, where ever I have looked, I could only find that ...

### Is it possible to calculate the optical flow magnitude for rigid motion?

For objects in 2D plane, it is pretty simple to calculate the displacement vectors using optical flow algorithms such as SLIC, LK, Färneback etc. But how it is possible to know the magnitude of the ...

### Determining Optic Flow - Horn and Schunck - robust/insensitive to …

Can somebody explain to me why the Horn and Schunck algorithm (probably mostly the smoothness constraint) is robust to image sequences that are quantized rather coarsely in space and/or time. (Thought ...

### Understanding Farneback Displacement Estimation

I am having some trouble in my attempt to understand some of the operations in the Farneback optical flow algorithm, and i would really appriciate if somebody could help me a bit along the way (and i ...

### Position vector of Lukas-Kanade optical flow algorithm

The classical optical flow equation by Lukas-Kanade can be simplified as follow: $$\frac{\delta I}{\delta x}\triangle x+\frac{\delta I}{\delta y}\triangle y + \frac{\delta I}{\delta t}\triangle t=0$$...

### Motion detection one threshold over dataset

We're working on a project where we have to detect the moments where motions happen in a medical scene. I have a data set of 20 videos that are closely resemble (Same camera & configuration used, ...

### Image warping with subpixel accuracy

I am trying to test the sub-pixel accuracy of an optical flow method and need to generate some synthetic data to do so. I start with an image $I_0$, which is a Perlin noise image and a set of sub-...

### Why are different methods used to optimize energy function for optical flow and stereo vision?

Optical flow and stereo vision both try to estimate dense correspondence from each pixel in one image to matching pixel in another image. For optical flow, the two images are taken from the same ...
