This paper presents a multi-resolution optical flow estimation method that is robust against large variation in the estimation parameter. For each level solution of the multi-grid estimation, a nonlinear iteration is proposed differently from the existing method, where the incremental displacement from the coarser level optical flow is calculated by linear iteration. The experimental results show that the proposed scheme has better error-performance in a much wider range of regularization parameters.
