Characterizing Image Motion

Konstantinos G. Derpanis

Technical Report CSE-2006-06

York University

June 12, 2006


This paper contains a review of the characterization and recovery of motion from image sequences. The main dichotomy of considered approaches is in terms of the extent of the region of description, namely, local (infinitesimal) versus regional. The local consideration concentrates on the recovery of optical flow, while the regional considerations provide richer, potentially semantically meaningful quantitative or qualitative descriptions of motion. The paper concludes with an outline of open problems.
