Condell J.V., Scotney B.W., Morrow P.J. (2001) Estimation of Motion through Inverse Finite Element Methods with Triangular Meshes. In: Skarbek W. (eds) Computer Analysis of Images and Patterns. CAIP 2001. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, vol 2124. Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg
This paper presents algorithms to implement the estimation of motion, focusing on the finite element method as a framework for the development of techniques. The finite element approach has the advantages of a rigorous mathematical formulation, speed of reconstruction, conceptual simplicity and ease of implementation via well-established finite element procedures in comparison to finite volume or finite difference techniques. The finite element techniques are implemented as a triangular discretisation, and preliminary results are presented. An important advantage is the capacity to tackle problems in which non-uniform sampling of the image sequence is appropriate, which will be addressed in future work.
