A Pel-Recursive Motion Estimation Algorithm



Hamid Gharavi, H Reza-alikhani


This paper presents a new pel recursive motion estimation algorithm for video coding applications. The derivation of the algorithm is based on Recursive Least-Squares (RLS) estimation that minimizes the mean square prediction error. A comparison with the modified Steepest-descent gradient estimation technique algorithm shows significant improvement in terms of mean-square prediction error performance.
