Title: REAL TIME FRAME ALIGNMENT IN VIDEO DATA
Abstract:
A sensor data processing apparatus can be coupled to multiple image sensors of different types. The apparatus determines a geolocation of areas imaged in each frame or pixel based on sensor geolocation information and encodes the geolocation information in metadata space of the corresponding frame. The apparatus is configured to align edges and/or corners of the frame with edges or corners of adjacent frames based on the geolocation information to stitch together a mosaic or panoramic image without overlapping frames. The apparatus can be figured to stitch together image frame in real time without performing feature registration and without resampling frames.
