Conference Paper: Low complexity dense motion estimation using phase correlation
[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: We propose a lowcomplexity dense motion estimation scheme particularly attractive for realtime video applications. Our scheme is based on overlapped blockbased motion estimation using phase correlation at critical pixel locations. These form an irregularly sampled grid capturing salient motion features of a scene. The dense vector field is obtained by applying normalized convolution on the irregular grid. Our experiments show that our scheme provides reliable subpixel accuracy motion vectors corresponding to actual scene motion, outperforms differential and phasebased methods and yields comparable performance to more complex and time consuming robust motion estimation techniques.Digital Signal Processing, 2009 16th International Conference on; 08/2009  [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: A fast method for superresolution (SR) recon struction from low resolution (LR) frames with known registration is proposed. The irregular LR samples are incorporated into the SR grid by stamp ing into 4nearest neighbors with position certainties. The signal certainty reects the errors in the LR pix els' positions (computed by crosscorrelation or optic o w) and their intensities. Adaptive normalized aver aging is used in the fusion stage to enhance local lin ear structure and minimize further blurring. The local structure descriptors including orientation, anisotropy and curvature are computed directly on the SR grid and used as steering parameters for the fusion. The optimum scale for local fusion is achieved by a sam ple density transform, which is also presented for the rst time in this paper.ASCI. 01/2004; 
Conference Paper: Normalized Averaging Using Adaptive Applicability Functions with Applications in Image Reconstruction from Sparsely and Randomly Sampled Data.
[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: In this paper we describe a new strategy for using local structure adaptive filtering in normalized convolution. The shape of the filter, used as the applicability function in the context of normalized convolution, adapts to the local image structure and avoids filtering across borders. The size of the filter is also adaptable to the local sampling density to avoid unnecessary smoothing over high certainty regions. We compare our adaptive interpolation technique with the conventional normalized averaging methods. We found that our strat egy yields a result that is much closer to the original signal both visually and in terms of MSE, meanwhile retaining sharpness and improving the SNR.Image Analysis, 13th Scandinavian Conference, SCIA 2003, Halmstad, Sweden, June 29  July 2, 2003, Proceedings; 01/2003
