Title: 「Study on Velocity Estimation from Blurred Image for Lunar/Planetary Landing」
The study presented an approach to optical navigation of spacecraft. The method is that we extract the blur from one image via Cepstrum transformation and then estimate translation motion from blur. This contributed the research about horizontal velocity estimation for safety landing against overturning.
This study revealed a potential for motion estimation from blurred image but only horizontal motion estimation. Therefore I want to make an effort to complete blur-based optical navigation considering vertical motion and rotation.
