Abstract : The authors' basic approach to detecting and tracking motion is to extract and match features, such as lines and regions, from a sequence and to generate motion estimates from these. They present one report on spatio-temporal analysis for tracking edges through very closely spaced sequences. They also present a report on matching edge-based contours using edges from multiple scales with low resolution guiding high resolution matches. They also present an analysis of estimating 3-D motion and structure of moving object with uniform acceleration. Keywords: Motion analysis; Target detection and description; Knowledge-based vision.
