Local Binary Pattern Based Fast Digital Image Stabilization

In this letter, a fast digital image stabilization method based on local binary pattern (LBP) for real time applications is presented. The LBP approach utilized in this work enables efficient representation of theimage frames in 1-bit depth resolution. A simple Boolean exclusive-OR (XOR) based matching criterion is employed to decide global motion vector between consecutive image frames.

The constant velocity model based Kalman filtering is executed on the global motion vectors to obtain smoothed frame positions. Experiments show that the proposed approach provides comparable or better performance against the methods at the same category by requiring lower computational complexity.
