Abstract

This note shows that the Riemann-space interpretation of motion vision developed by Barth and Watson is neither necessary for their results, nor sufficient to handle an intrinsic coordinate problem. Recasting the Barth-Watson framework as a classical velocity-solver (as in computer vision) solves these problems.
