**Solving the Aperture Problem**

How to get more equations for a pixel? Basic idea: impose additional constraints most common is to assume that the flow field is smooth locally one method: pretend the pixel’s neighbors have the same (u,v) If we use a 5x5 window, that gives us 25 equations per pixel!

33
Edge Bad for motion estimation - large l1, small l2

34
**Low Texture Region Bad for motion estimation:**

- gradients have small magnitude - small l1, small l2

35
**High Textured Region Good for motion estimation:**

- gradients are different, large magnitudes - large l1, large l2

36
**Good Features to Track This is a two image problem BUT**

Can measure sensitivity by just looking at one of the images! This tells us which pixels are easy to track, which are hard very useful later on when we do feature tracking... For more detail, check “Good feature to Track”, Shi and Tomasi, CVPR 1994

124
**Pros and Cons of AAM Registration**

It can register facial images from different peoples, different facial expressions and different illuminations The quality of results heavily depends on training datasets Gradient-based optimization is prone to local minima It often fails when face is under extreme deformation, pose, or illumination Needs to figure out a better way to measure the distance between input image and template image (e.g., gradients and edges)

125
**Lucas-Kanade for Image Alignment**

Pros: All pixels get used in matching Can get sub-pixel accuracy (important for good mosaicing!) Relatively fast and simple Applicable to optical flow estimation, parametric motion tracking, and AAM registration Cons: Prone to local minima Relative small movement

126
**Beyond 2D Tracking/Registration**

So far, we focus on registration between 2D images The same idea can be used in registration between 3D and 2D (model-based tracking) We will go back to this when we talk about model-based 3D tracking (e.g., head, human body and hand gesture)
