Title: Motion Tracking and Event Understanding in Video Sequences





Three questions (Pick one and answer it as a one-page essay):

Essay #1:
We have presented two detection algorithms:
Background learning method for stationary cameras
Residual motion for moving platforms
Describe these algorithms and suggest an approach for combining the two (I.e. a background learning method for moving platforms).

Essay #2
Various methods are used for estimating camera motion: Direct parameter estimation, RANSAC&
Can you describe the joint image space algorithm and explain why registering two images amounts to identify planar patches in the joint image space

Essay #3:
Describe the tracking algorithms presented:
Graph based blob tracking
Perceptual grouping based tracking
And explain what are the advantages in combining both for tracking moving objects in a scene.
