Full text: PDF


In the modern era of time the need of motion estimation is of great importance due to the existence of a wide variety of applications in the fields of entertainment, multimedia applications, computer vision, surveillance, and security. The different techniques are mainly compared in terms of algorithmic efficiency, hardware requirement, processing speed and error performances. In this paper for the sake of providing security and surveillance, a concept to detect the motion of the objects in video frames as well as a suitable parallel hardware architecture for the implementation of this algorithm is being proposed. We have captured real world movies having different speed of the moving object, and analyzed the differences that have occurred due to changes in motion, verified the performance of the algorithm and architecture through simulation. MATLAB has been used to develop this algorithm and logic verification of the proposed architecture has been done using VHDL. The efficiency of the proposed scheme is also being compared with other related works.
