In many application fields (e.g., aerospace and biomedical image processing), one has to deal with a sequence of images whose observation is made difficult by unpredictable relative movements of the camera and the scene. In order to obtain a stable display, the displacement of each image in the sequence with respect to one chosen as a reference must be preliminarily determined. This would usually require two-dimensional algorithms, involving a considerable computational effort. This work discusses a new algorithm for image registration, which requires only one-dimensional Fourier transformations. Preliminary experimental results are reported.
