Concerns the 3D interpretation of image sequences showing multiple objects in motion. Each object exhibits smooth motion except at certain time instants when a motion discontinuity may occur. The objects are assumed to contain point features which are detected as the images are acquired. Estimating feature trajectories in the first two frames amounts to feature matching. As more images are acquired, existing trajectories are extended. Both initial detection and extension of trajectories are done by enforcing pertinent constraints from among the following: similarity of the image plane arrangement of neighboring features, smoothness of the 3D motion and smoothness of the image plane motion. The constraints are incorporated into energy functions which are minimized using 2D Hopfield networks. Wrong matches that result from convergence to local minima are eliminated using a 1D Hopfield-like network. Experimental results on several image sequences are shown
