Abstract

Motion estimation is an important problem in computer vision. It has applications in video compression, artificial intelligence, stereo matching, 3D scene reconstruction from video, and a number of other areas. I introduce the motion estimation problem and list potential difficulties that a solution must overcome. I then describe previous work related to edge based motion estimation and present a new algorithm to the reader. Finally, I discuss my results and possible improvements that may be made to my algorithm.
