A Review of Stereo and Motion Integration: Stereomotion

Mikhail Sizintsev

Technical Report CSE-2009-06

York University

October 26 2009


This report provides an in-depth overview of the computer vision technique known as stereomotion that concerns the estimation of structure and motion from binocular video sequences. First, the modalities of separate stereo and motion estimation are discussed in light of advantages and shortcomings with respect to each other -- as a result, the set of anticipated benefits of stereo and motion fusion is stated. Second, the current stereomotion literature is reviewed along three major directions: rigid structure from motion; non-rigid scene and 3D flow; temporally-coherent and spacetime stereo. Third, performance characteristics of state-of-the-art techniques are presented and compared. Finally, the report concludes by looking at open problems and speculations on future research directions.
