Abstract
To measure sub-pixel image motion of sequential images which is captured at high frame rate, the joint transform correlator (JTC) is used. The relative image motion of two adjacent images can be measured by inputting these images into JTC. The principle of this method is described, photo-electrical devices are selected, and an experimental platform is built. Based on which, the measurement performances of JTC are researched, including the influence of scene structure on measurement accuracy, effect of the size of input image on measurement accuracy, and the measurement range of the image motion of JTC. After doing these, the over-all properties of JTC is verified by using a sample which containes 50 different random image motions. The results show that, the JTC can measure sub-pixel image motion of two adjacent images entirely, and the accuracy is not variable with the contents of input images. The measurement error submits to normal distribution, which means zero and RMS is no more than 0.12 pixels under conspicuous level equal to 0.05. Lastly, the source of error which deteriorates measurement accuracy is analyzed simply.
