We propose an algorithm for simultaneous estimation and segmentation of the optical flow. The moving scene is decomposed in different regions with respect to their motion, by means of a pattern recognition scheme. The feature vectors are drawn from the image sequence and they are used to train a Radial Basis Functions (RBF) neural network. The learning algorithm for the RBF network minimizes a cost function derived from the probability estimation theory. The proposed algorithm was applied in real image sequences.
