Abstract: This paper deals with image stabilisation for video-based tracking systems. An introduction to image stabilisation is stated. A short description of known algorithms for image stabilisation follows, including our solution based on these methods with some optimisations. At the end, we represent a suitable hardware platform, which we developed and constructed and uses Digital Signal Processor (DSP), Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) and Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory (SDRAM). This device is under testing now.

Keywords: image stabilisation; real-time video stabilisation; video stream; digital signal processing; DSP; field programmable gate arrays; FPGA; video-based tracking; synchronous dynamic RAM; random access memory; SDRAM.
