digital video, stabilization, unmanned aerial vehicle


We developed an information technology for stabilization of video from the board of unmanned aerialvehicle that allows compensating influence of macromotions and micromotions of video camera, i.e. removing thefluctuations of separate video frames and increasing their sharpness. Above mentioned methods and means could beused in video processing in real time.
