Real world computer vision highly depends on reliable, robust systems for recognition of motion cues to make accurate high-level decisions about its

The algorithm is based on constant characteristics of a common, 2frame interlaced video signal, yet its applicability to generically acquired image sequences will be shown as well. In general, our approach presents a computationally low-cost solution to motion estimation application and compares very well to existing approaches due to its robustness towards environmental changes. A simple application of motion parameter estimation based on a pedestrian surveillance application is illustrated.
