Abstract

A corrected evaluation benchmark is proposed based on the Middlebury benchmark. The major contributions of the presented benchmark include the following: error metrics of endpoint error are modified, and the corrected metrics can decrease the detrimental influence of human factors and reflect the actual flow evaluation performance. In addition, the metric of normalization endpoint error is projected to reveal the relative error of the flow result endpoint, which can eliminate the influence of small flow errors. For flow error statistics, a mathematical expectation is employed instead of the current mathematical average as the expectation can reflect a more appropriate error distribution for the flow result. In addition, robust statistics and the accuracy measures derived from the Middlebury benchmark are employed to evaluate the robustness of optical flow in the proposed method.
