Paper Abstract

This paper deals with research on detecting moving point target trajectory in image sequence. A novel method is presents for this purpose, which combines two 2-dimension Hough transforms to suppress noise points and to detect trajectory points in time order. The first Hough transform has an accumulators array using a restricted voting process and a set of straight lines are found in the image plane. A new T-L parameter space is proposed which is derived from these straight lines. In the second transform, collinear points are mapped into T-L space and it is easy to find the direction of motion. Experimental results show that our method can effectively extract moving point target trajectory accurately in a limited observing time especially scanning images from large numbers of noise points while search region is much larger than target movability.
