Optical flow estimation using high frame rate sequences
Gradient-based optical flow estimation methods such as LucasKanade method work well for scenes with small displacements but fail when objects move with large displacements. Hierarchical matching-based methods do not suffer from large displacements but are less accurate. By utilizing the high speed imaging capability of CMOS image sensors, the frame rate can be increased to obtain more accurate optical flow with wide range of scene velocities in real time. Further, by integrating the memory and processing with the sensor on the same chip, optical flow estimation using high frame rate sequences can be performed without unduly increasing the off-chip data rate. The paper describes a method for obtaining high accuracy optical flow at a standard frame rate using high frame rate sequences. The Lucas-Kanade method is used to obtain optical flow estimates at high frame rate, which are then accumulated and refined to obtain optical flow estimates at a standard frame rate. The method is tested ...
