FAST IMAGE MOSAICS ALGORITHM USING PARTICLE SWARM OPTIMIZATION
Image mosaic plays an important role in producing panoramic image. We proposed an automated seamless mosaics algorithm. In our proposal, firstly, we use particle swarm optimization (PSO) to find a certain area which contains sufficient objective characters, then we use pattern matching method to search the matching patch in another image and adjust image; at last, we make use of feathering blending to provide a smooth transition between overlapping areas and get automated seamless mosaics of images.
