What if you only had one eye?

Depth perception is possible by moving eye

Parallax

Motion parallax – apparent displacement of object viewed along two different lines of sight

Head movements for depth perception

Some animals move their heads to generate parallax

Motion field and optical flow

- Motion field – The actual 3D motion projected onto image plane
- Optical flow – The “apparent” motion of the brightness pattern in an image(sometimes called optic flow)

When are the two different?

Aperture problem

From previous slide:

Key idea:

Any function looks linear through small `aperture’

This is one equation, two unknowns!

(Underconstrained problem)

answer

I(x,y,t+Dt)=x

isophote

I(x,y,t)=xisophote

We can only compute component of motion in direction of gradient:

Two approaches to overcome aperture problem

- Horn-Schunck (1980)
- Assume neighboring pixels are similar
- Add regularization term to enforce smoothness
- Compute (u,v) for every pixel in image
- Dense optical flow
- Lucas-Kanade (1981)
- Assume neighboring pixels are same
- Use additional equations to solve for motion of pixel
- Compute (u,v) for a small number of pixels (features); each feature treated independently of other features
- Sparse optical flow

Lucas-Kanade

Recall scalar equation with two unknowns:

Assume neighboring pixels have same motion:

where N is the number of pixels in the window

or

Can solve this directly using least squares, or …

RGB version

- For color images, we can get more equations by using all color channels
- E.g., for 7x7 window we have 49*3=147 equations!

Improving accuracy

It-1(x,y)

It-1(x,y)

- Recall our small motion assumption

- This is not exact
- To do better, we need to add higher order terms back in:

It-1(x,y)

- This is a polynomial root finding problem

- Can solve using Newton’s method
- Also known as Newton-Raphson method
- Lucas-Kanade method does one iteration of Newton’s method
- Better results are obtained via more iterations

* From Khurram Hassan-Shafique CAP5415 Computer Vision 2003

Iterative Lucas-Kanade Algorithm

- Solve 2x2 equation to get motion for each pixel
- Shift second image using estimated motion(Use interpolation to improve accuracy)
- Repeat until convergence

How does Lucas-Kanade work?

- Recall Newton’s method(or Newton-Raphson)
- To find root of function, use first-order approximation
- Start with initial guess
- Iterate:
- Use derivative to find root, under assumption that function is linear
- Result become new estimate for next iteration

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newton-Raphson_method

Because no change in brightness with time

Optical Flow: 1D CaseBrightness Constancy Assumption:

from G. Bradski, CS223B

Spatial derivative

Assumptions:

- Brightness constancy
- Small motion

from G. Bradski, CS223B

Temporal derivative at 2nd iteration

Can keep the same estimate for spatial derivative

Tracking in the 1D case:Iterating helps refining the velocity vector

Converges in about 5 iterations

from G. Bradski, CS223B

From 1D to 2D tracking

We get at most “Normal Flow” – with one point we can only detect movement

perpendicular to the brightness gradient. Solution is to take a patch of pixels

around the pixel of interest.

* Slide from Michael Black, CS143 2003

When does Lucas-Kanade work?

- ATA must be invertible
- In real world, all matrices are invertible
- Instead, we must ensure that ATA is well-conditioned (not close to singular):
- Both eigenvalues are large
- Ratio of eigenvalues lmax / lmin is not too large

Eigenvalues of Hessian

- Z is gradient covariance matrix
- Related to autocorrelation of I(Moravec interest operator)
- Sometimes called Hessian
- Recall from PCA:
- (Square root of) eigenvalues give length of best fitting ellipse
- Large eigenvalues means large gradient vectors
- Small ratio means information in all directions

Three cases:

- l1 and l2 small

- l1 large, l2 small

M. Pollefeys, http://www.cs.unc.edu/Research/vision/comp256fall03/

Note: Even though tracking is a two-frame problem, we can determine good features from only one frame

Finding good features

- In practice, eigenvalues cannot be too large,b/c image values range from [0,255]
- Solution: Threshold minimum eigenvalue (Shi and Tomasi 1994)
- An alternative approach (Harris and Stephens 1987):
- Note that det(Z) = l1l2 and trace(Z) = l1+ l1
- Use det(Z) – k trace(Z)2, where k=0.04 The second term reduces effect of having a small eigenvalue with a large dominant eigenvalue (known as Harris corner detector or Plessey operator)
- Another alternative: det(Z) / trace(Z) = 1 / (1/l1 + 1/l2)

Good features code

- % Harris Corner detector - by Kashif Shahzad
- sigma=2; thresh=0.1; sze=11; disp=0;
- % Derivative masks
- dy = [-1 0 1; -1 0 1; -1 0 1];
- dx = dy'; %dx is the transpose matrix of dy
- % Ix and Iy are the horizontal and vertical edges of image
- Ix = conv2(bw, dx, 'same');
- Iy = conv2(bw, dy, 'same');
- % Calculating the gradient of the image Ix and Iy
- g = fspecial('gaussian',max(1,fix(6*sigma)), sigma);
- Ix2 = conv2(Ix.^2, g, 'same'); % Smoothed squared image derivatives
- Iy2 = conv2(Iy.^2, g, 'same');
- Ixy = conv2(Ix.*Iy, g, 'same');
- % My preferred measure according to research paper
- cornerness = (Ix2.*Iy2 - Ixy.^2)./(Ix2 + Iy2 + eps);
- % We should perform nonmaximal suppression and threshold
- mx = ordfilt2(cornerness,sze^2,ones(sze)); % Grey-scale dilate
- cornerness = (cornerness==mx)&(cornerness>thresh); % Find maxima
- [rws,cols] = find(cornerness); % Find row,col coords.

Feature tracking

- Identify features and track them over video
- Usually use a few hundred features
- When many features have been lost, renew feature detection
- Assume small difference between frames
- Potential large difference overall
- Two problems:
- Motion between frames may be large
- Translation assumption is fine between consecutive frames, but long periods of time introduce deformations

Revisiting the small motion assumption

- Is this motion small enough?
- Probably not—it’s much larger than one pixel (2nd order terms dominate)
- How might we solve this problem?

Alternative derivation

- Compute translation assuming it is small

differentiate:

- Affine is also possible, but a bit harder (6x6 in stead of 2x2)

Example

Simple displacement is sufficient between consecutive frames, but not to compare to reference template

Good features to keep tracking

Perform affine alignment between first and last frame

Stop tracking features with too large errors

M. Pollefeys, http://www.cs.unc.edu/Research/vision/comp256fall03/

Errors in Lucas-Kanade

What are the potential causes of errors in this procedure?

- Suppose ATA is easily invertible
- Suppose there is not much noise in the image

- When our assumptions are violated
- Brightness constancy is not satisfied
- The motion is not small
- A point does not move like its neighbors
- window size is too large
- what is the ideal window size?

* From Khurram Hassan-Shafique CAP5415 Computer Vision 2003

Feature matching vs. tracking

Image-to-image correspondences are key to passive triangulation-based 3D reconstruction

Extract features independently and then match by comparing descriptors

Extract features in first images and then try to find same feature back in next view

What is a good feature?

Solve equation:

This is a pair of equations for each pixel. The combined system of equations is 2N x 2N, where N is the number of pixels in the image.

Because it is a sparse matrix, iterative methods (Jacobi iterations, Gauss-Seidel, successive over-relaxation) are more appropriate.

Iterate:

Stationary iterative methods

Problem is to solve sparse linear system:

matrix = (diagonal) – (lower) – (upper)

Jacobi method (simply solve for element, using existing estimates):

Gauss-Seidel is “sloppy Jacobi” (use updates as soon as they are available):

Successive over relaxation (SOR) speeds convergence:
