Paper Abstract

The ultimate goal of image restoration is to recover a degraded image utilizing the digital image processing techniques. Image degradations may be in the form of sensor noise, blur due to camera misfocus, relative object-camera motion, and so on. However, the quality of restored results is closely related to the accuracy in estimating the degradation function, which is termed the point spread function (PSF). In this paper, a procedure that can be used to determine the PSF for a motion degraded image is presented. The method is to extract a block of blurred edge from the degraded image, and estimate the PSF from the autocorrelation of that area. The results of applying the proposed procedure to some motion blurred images are presented and the performance is discussed.
