Description Optical flow estimation can be formulated as two re-gression stages, derivative estimation and optical flow con-straints (OFC) solving. Traditional approaches use Least-Squares at both stages and are sensitive to assumption vi-olations. To improve estimation accuracy especially near motion boundaries, we use a Least Trimmed Squares (LTS) estimator to solve the OFC, obtaining a confidence mea-sure for each estimate; and at place with low confidence, we use another LTS estimator to robustify derivative es-timation. This adaptive two-stage robust scheme has sig-nificantly higher accuracy than non-robust algorithms and those only using robust methods at the OFC stage. Advan-tages are illustrated on both synthetic and real data. 1
