Look out for:

• the basic concepts of optical flow and its limitations.

• the idea of a focus of expansion.

• identification of the ground plane as an early stage in the analysis of many types of scene incorporating motions.

• the need for “occlusion reasoning” when objects repeatedly pass behind one another and then reemerge.

• the important status of the ...
