In this correspondence, we show how to recover the motion of an observer relative to a planar surface from image brightness derivatives. We do not compute the optical flow as an intermediate step, only the spatial and temporal brightness gradients (at a minimum of eight points). We first present two iterative schemes for solving nine nonlinear equations in terms of the motion and surface parameters that are derived from a least-squares fomulation. An initial pass over the relevant image region… CONTINUE READING
