The pel-recursive computation of 2-D optical flow raises a wealth of issues, such as the treatment of outliers, motion discontinuities and occlusion. Our proposed approach deals with these issues within a common framework. It relies on the use of a data-driven technique called Generalised Cross Validation to estimate the best regularisation scheme for a given pixel. In our model, the regularisation parameter is a general matrix whose entries can account for different sources of error. The motion vector estimation takes into consideration local image properties following a spatially adaptive approach where each moving pixel is supposed to have its own regularisation matrix. Preliminary experiments indicate that this approach provides robust estimates of the optical flow.
