Image matching has been a critical research topic in many computer vision applications such as stereo vision, feature tracking, motion tracking, image registration and mosaicing, object recognition, 3D reconstruction, etc. Normalized Cross Correlation (NCC) is a template based image matching approach which is invariant to linear brightness and contrast variations. As a first step in mosaicing, we use NCC to a great extent for matching images which is an expensive and time consuming operation. Thus an attempt is made to implement NCC in GPU and multi-CPU in order to improve execution time for real time applications. Finally we compare the enhancement in performance and efficiency in timing by switching NCC implementation from CPU to GPU.
