An Introduction to Image and 3D Motion Computation Using Event-based Vision
Abstract: Asynchronous event-based sensors allow us to capture the environment fast, under low light or high dynamic range conditions, and without motion blur. However, traditional frame-based vision approaches cannot be applied due to the asynchronous nature of incoming measurements. We present an introduction to event representation and processing, and how it is applied in optical flow computation, feature tracking, and stereo vision.
The recovery of 3D motion and structure is shown using traditional and learning based techniques. We show how event processing differs from frame processing and the outstanding challenges.
