A new method for computing precise estimates of the motion vectors of moving objects in a sequence of images is proposed. The proposed method is based on dynamic programming matching applied along chain-coded binary contours of images. This significantly reduces the computational complexity of the correspondence matching applied to the 2-D optimization problem. Computer simulation and experimental results demonstrate a good performance of the method in terms of dynamic motion analysis.
