Optical Flow Estimation with Occlusion Detection
AbstractThe dense optical flow estimation under occlusion is a challenging task. Occlusion may result in ambiguity in optical flow estimation, while accurate occlusion detection can reduce the error. In this paper, we propose a robust optical flow estimation algorithm with reliable occlusion detection. Firstly, the occlusion areas in successive video frames are detected by integrating various information from multiple sources including feature matching, motion edges, warped images and occlusion consistency. Then optimization function with occlusion coefficient and selective region smoothing are used to obtain the optical flow estimation of the non-occlusion areas and occlusion areas respectively. Experimental results show that the algorithm proposed in this paper is an effective algorithm for dense optical flow estimation. View Full-Text
