The variant methods are advanced optical-flow because they provide specific density estimates and lead to minimization problems that can be resolved efficiently. However, two significant issues remain open: the hardiness of the method for large displacement, and the calculation of optical-flow in occlusion areas.
It is difficult to detect large displacement because the restriction of brightness of the optical-flow models cannot be adjusted, the maximum minimization problem is not convex, and numerical algorithms converge to a local minimum point close to the initial point. In order to mitigate the impact of the initialization, classical techniques utilize a multidisciplinary strategy to find the minimum model at large-scale but neglect the small-scale structures that are not in the raw resolution. Large displacement methods solve this problem by introducing a descriptive matching step with the variation model that pilots the multi-resolution to a local minimum relevant for small-scale structures. The various methods are consequently still the core of the optical flow, but only some of which include obvious occlusions in the model.
Flow errors occur in occlusion areas because the restriction of brightness required to incorporate intensity in areas that have no correspondence. To avoid these errors, occlusion-aware techniques are taking into account occlusions in the model. This can be done completely by ignoring the restriction of brightness in areas where the flow model is broken or clearly by presenting an occlusion variable in the. A second criterion distinguishing between these methods is the way that occlusions are combined into the model: at first computing the flow of neglected occlusions, using weak flow to detect occlusions, and then adjust the flow in the occlusion areas; while the joint methods clearly present the occlusions in the model and produce a single reduction that the flows and occlusion variables interact. The improvement of joint methods is more complex, but these models are stronger because the flow and occlusions together illustrate the data. Therefore, we propose a generic model but design it to indicate occlusion detection rather than the estimation of flow.
There are two criteria for detecting occlusions from estimated flow that can Individually of the level of collaboration between flow and occlusions: the first one using the flow to detect occlusions as unrecognized pixels and the second use non-correspondence between forward and backward flows to detected occlusions as pixels. We accept the first criterion and present a transient model for the set of occlusion; this distinguishes our model from the current technique of processing only two images and ignore the temporary dimension of occlusions in the video.
Although relevant, methods for detecting the boundaries of occlusion regions and layered models explain a different problem. They detect boundaries of occlusion regions from one segment of the image to find objects in the scene and their relative order; as a result, they are closer to image and motion segmentation than to our method. Recently, machine-learning classifiers have also been used for occlusion detection in. The nature of learning from the data of these approaches differs from our model, which is designed form the restriction of physical rather than data analysis and does not require training sessions.
In summary, we propose a variant method for estimating optical flow and detecting occlusion regions, but focusing on the occlusions in our modeling design. As a variation model, our approach has the adaptability to combine the large displacement techniques, and more robust data terms to improve estimation of optical flow.
