Abstract

Global motion estimation is a fundamental tool for image processing and computer vision. Since low-cost real-time devices have limited computational resources, the computational burden of global motion estimation remains considerable for low-cost devices. Hence, a fast global motion estimation algorithm for single instruction multiple data (SIMD) processors with which a CPU in modern mobile computing devices is commonly equipped is proposed. Conventional projection-based global motion estimation is modified to improve the prediction accuracy for videos containing large motions. To significantly increase the parallelism, the exact sizes of the variables in each processing step of the proposed algorithm are determined by considering the size of an SIMD register. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed scheme is considerably fast and accurate, even for videos containing large motions.
