Paper Abstract

Moving target tracking from high resolution satellite videos has tremendous potential applications such as visual surveillance, traffic monitoring and so on. This paper proposed a moving target detection algorithm based on the optical flow of edge points for the video sequences in dynamic scene without image registration. Given two consecutive frames, they are firstly processed following with Canny edge operator. And then, the displacements of each pair of edges are computed based on bidirectional optical flow method, which provides high speed and precision. Thirdly, the displacement histogram of all the matched edges is established, which is used to eliminate the influence of the background for the images without registration. Finally, the edge points of moving target are matched based on edge constraint, and the moving target region is determined. Experiment results show that our method has an excellent performance of target tracking for the high resolution satellite videos without image registration.
