A Generalized Optical Flow Constraint and its Physical Interpretation

Abstract : This paper addresses the issue of motion estimation on image sequences. The standard motion equation used to complete the apparent motion of image irradiance patterns is an invariance brightness based hypothesis called the optical flow constraint. Other equations can be used, in particular the extended optical flow constraint, which is a variant of the optical flow constraint, inspired by the fluid mechanic mass conservation principle. In this paper we propose a physical interpretation of this extended optical flow equation and a new model unifying the optical flow and the extended optical flow constraints. We present results obtained for synthetic and meteorological images
