Motion Blur Compensation using Inertial Measurement Sensors (B)

Status: Abgeschlossen

A common use case of smartphone cameras is to take photos of pin board advertisements or posters to remember a piece of information. Camera movements such as handshake during the exposure result in motion blur and hence unreadable information in the recoded image. The goal of this project is to investigate how this camera motion blur can be compensated by using inertial measurement sensors. The values of a smartphone's built-in accelerometer and gyroscope are evaluated to estimate the motion during the shot. The specific properties of text in contrast to natural images have to be accounted for at the blur removal phase.

This project requires an interest in image processing. The ideal candidate also has good programming skills.
