This thesis investigates the use of 3D scene flow and 3D range flow as a means of computing 3D observer (sensor or camera) motion. We implemented and evaluated the scene flow algorithm presented in Stereoscopic Scene Flow Computation for 3D Motion Understanding by Wedel et al. 2010. We modified (performed pyramidal image processing with warping) and re-implemented the range flow algorithms pre­ sented in Quantitative Regularized Range Flow by Spies et al. 2000. Both algorithms are 2-frame algorithms using a pyramid. The results for these scene and range flow algorithms were quantitatively and qualitatively compared on synthetic and real car driving stereo sequences.
