Paper Abstract

A parallel algorithm is presented for the extraction of the optical flow in an image which has a noisy background. The approach generalizes to higher dimensional spaces so that it can also be used to model the evolution of an n dimensional noisy signal, by assuming that valid signal points adhere to a restricted domain of temporal models, while noise points don't. By analyzing the flow and input field, hypothesis regarding targets are determined. These hypothesis can be fused with other sensors and the global hypothesis fed back to the mapping unit to improve the determination of the optical flow.
