Motion calculation is often a necessary pre-processing step for moving object detection and tracking. It is a challenging task when the images are taken in outdoor scenes with cameras mounted on a moving vehicle. In this paper we present an accurate and efficient motion calculation system. The accuracy of the system is achieved by estimating background motions and eliminating those pixels that have similar motions to the background motion, and by calculating motion vectors using affine image transformation with Newton-Raphson style search method under subpixel resolution. Efficiency is achieved by concentrating on the regions of interests through a coarse-to-fine process.
