Estimation of 3D Instantaneous Motion of a Ball from a Single Motion-Blurred Image

  title={Estimation of 3D Instantaneous Motion of a Ball from a Single Motion-Blurred Image},
  author={Giacomo Boracchi and Vincenzo Caglioti and Alessandro Giusti},
We present a single-image algorithm for reconstructing the 3D velocity, the 3D spin axis, and the angular speed of a moving ball. Peculiarity of the proposed algorithm is that this reconstruction is achieved by accurately analyzing the blur produced by the ball motion during the exposure. We combine image analysis techniques in order to obtain 3D estimates, that are then integrated into a geometrical model for recovering the 3D motion. The algorithm is validated with experiments on both… CONTINUE READING
