Paper Abstract

This work discusses a new method to extract structural information from a sequence of images. The sequence must represent a fixed environment and its changes must be caused only by camera motion. The algorithm that will be proposed operates on an estimate of the two-dimensional velocity field, the so called "Optical Flow". The result is obtained when the camera undergoes a pure translation and it is a depth map of the environment in which the camera has moved.
