7 Problem definition: optical flow How to estimate pixel motion from image H to image I? Solve pixel correspondence problem – given a pixel in H, look for nearby pixels of the same color in I Key assumptions color constancy: a point in H looks the same in I – For grayscale images, this is brightness constancy small motion : points do not move very far This is called the optical flow problem Optical flow constraints (grayscale images) Let’s look at these constraints more closely brightness constancy: Q: what’s the equation? small motion: (u and v are less than 1 pixel) – suppose we take the Taylor series expansion of I:

8 Optical flow equation Combining these two equations In the limit as u and v go to zero, this becomes exact Optical flow equation Q: how many unknowns and equations per pixel? Intuitively, what does this constraint mean?
