In this video, you will learn how to estimate motion between video frames. We will explain how we perceive motion and how to estimate motion using a technique called Optical Flow. You can use three algorithms to implement optical flow using the Computer Vision Toolbox. These three algorithms are Horn-Schunck method, Farneback method, and Lucas-Kanade method. An example of a robot boat moving through a field of buoys will be used.
We’d like to thank the Cedarville University RoboBoat team for providing a video from their vehicle.
