Motion Layers and Image Parsing
There exists a theoretical gap between model-based tracking of complex
objects and early motion estimation, namely, the selection and initialization
of models. It seems clear that some form of early analysis should help
one select and initialize models, but this remains a largely unexplored
topic. Allan Jepson, Michael Black and I have been working on methods for
extracting effective representations of visual motion that provide an
efficient characterization of the principal moving components of a scene
and their relative depths. In future research we hope to use this
representation to infer the occurrence of plausible models for subsequent
model selection and refinement.
