Paper Abstract

In the registration of two dimensional images that are obtained from two different sensors and from geometrically different locations there are distortions. These distortions can cause errors in the navigational systems that use them. In this paper a lower bound on the registration error is derived by using a model that treats the sensed and reference images as the two ends of a communication channel. Then rate distortion theory is applied to obtain a relationship between the registration error and the statistical properties of the images. The resulting bound can be used to predict the registration error, in the selection of the proper reference images, and in comparing the performance of the image registration systems.
