Recovering Fluid-type Motions Using Navier-Stokes Potential Flow
The classical optical flow assumes that a feature point maintains constant brightness across the frames. For fluidtype motions such as smoke or clouds, the constant brightness assumption does not hold, and accurately estimating the motion flow from their images is difficult. In this paper, we introduce a simple but effective Navier-Stokes (NS) potential flow model for recovering fluid-type motions. Our method treats the image as a wavefront surface and models the 3D potential flow beneath the surface. The gradient of the velocity potential describes the motion flow at every voxel. We first derive a general brightness constraint that explicitly models wavefront (brightness) variations in terms of the velocity potential. We then use a series of partial differential equations to separately model the dynamics of the potential flow. To solve for the potential flow, we use the Dirichlet-Neumann Operator (DNO) to simplify the 3D volumetric velocity potential to 2D surface velocity potential....
