Abstract

In this paper, we propose a novel camera motion estimation algorithm for mobile platforms. Videos captured by cameras mounted in mobile platforms suffer from jitter motions caused by various factors. It is vital to obtain accurate estimates of camera motions in order to remove these undesirable jitters. But existing motion estimation methods for mobile platforms have difficulties to deal with the interference of moving objects and estimation errors. We propose to estimate camera motions from histograms of local motions as the position of the highest peak in each motion histogram is insensitive to estimation errors and robust to the interference of moving objects. We also propose to use sorted arrays to implement histograms due to its advantages. Experiments show our proposed methods can achieve promising results.

5 citations in Scopus
Search Google Scholar™

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
