In Chapter 5 it was shown how it is possible to measure components of optical flow orthogonal to
fragments of edges directly from illuminance gradient data in pairs of frames taken from temporal
image sequences. In Chapter 9 it was demonstrated how, starting with an array of such fragmentary
flow data, simple window analysis can then provide a variety of true flow data, both for local rigid
bodies and for the whole scene. Yet again, in Chapter 10 it has been explained how a directly
similar approach may be used on
stereo pairs of images, in order to extract a wide variety of stereo
disparity data. However, whilst these methods of analysis are both simple and powerful, one aspect
of optical flow or stereo disparity which they cannot determine is the
true local disparity of specific
