Title: METHOD FOR PROCESSING AN IMAGE SEQUENCE AND TESTER FOR A CAR
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for identifying motion in an image sequence (S), which method involves an image processing device (22) ascertaining a change of position of image features (M1 to M4) in a current image (A) in respect of a reference image (reference 1), having the following steps: paired association of corresponding image features (M1-M1' to M4-M4'), one of which can be found in the current image (A) and one of which can be found in the reference image (reference 1), and determination of model parameters describing the change of position for a motion model (H) on the basis of the image features (M1-M1' to M4-M4') which are associated with one another. The estimation of the model parameters needs to be improved. To this end, at least one static region (98, 60) is ascertained for the current image, in which static region the change of position of the image contents contained therein is smaller than a predetermined amount, and the model parameters are determined by using only image features (M1 to M4, M1' to M4') which can be found outside the at least one static region (98, 60).
