The importance of motion in attracting attention is well known. While watching videos, where motion is prevalent, how do we quantify the regions that are motion salient? In this paper, we investigate the role of motion in attention and compare it with the influence of other low-level features like image orientation and intensity. We propose a framework for motion saliency. In particular, we integrate motion vector information with spatial and temporal coherency to generate a motion attention map. The results show that our model achieves good performance in identifying regions that are moving and salient. We also find motion to have greater influence on saliency than other low-level features when watching videos.
