Target tracking in video sequences can suf … Target tracking in video sequences can suffer poor performances if the camera is moving (e.g, wind, hand held device, aerial tracking system). The aim of the project is to investigate the state of the art in image stabilization and registration in non static or cluttered scenes. Possible ideas to be investigated include: homography tracking or smoothing, 3D camera motion estimation, image registration and mosicing. As a by product of the work, a tool for the performance evaluation of image stabilization algorithms should be designed.
