This paper proposes a method for detecting obstacles on a runway from monocular image sequences. The surface of the runway is modelled as a plane and the model flow field corresponding to the runway is described by 8 coefficients. The set of 8 coefficients describing the initial model flow field is given by the data from inertial navigation system (INS). The uncertainties of this initial model flow field are estimated and used to obtain the accurate model flow field. The residual flow field after warping images by the accurate model flow field is computed by solving overdetermined gradient-based optical flow equations using a singular value decomposition (SVD). This SVD gives us a new insight of the uncertainties inherent in the optical flow computation. Those pixels with large residual flow vectors are considered as obstacles. Experimental results for two real image sequences are presented
