A new technique for visual motion alarm

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

7 Scopus citations


A new technique for motion detection and location is proposed and illustrated. It is intended for interactive visual surveillance systems. Absolute values of the differences between pairs of images belonging to a sequence taken by a still camera are computed. The absolute values are thresholded and projected onto horizontal, vertical, and two diagonal directions. Motion detection and location are derived from the backprojection image. The projections and the backprojection require two passes through a parallel pipeline processing engine (P3E). Examples are presented.
