In this paper, a non-causal median filtering method is proposed to predict the motion vectors across the wavelet subbands of a video frame for multiresolution motion estimation. This median filtering method effectively overcomes the problem of propagation of false motion vectors that exists in the conventional multiresolution motion estimation schemes. A significant feature of the proposed technique is that it imposes no demand for additional bandwidth. Simulation studies show that this median filtering-based multiresolution motion; estimation technique effectively improves the motion prediction performance. It is further shown that this performance improvement is achieved with little increase in the computational complexity.
