<p><b>Abstract</b>—This paper addresses the use of spatiotemporal transform methods applied to the analysis of dynamic image sequences and the characterization of image motion. Image motion including a divergent component (resulting from a looming camera component) is analyzed in the spatiotemporal Mellin Transform (MT) domain, resulting in the separation of the spectrum into two parts: a structural term corresponding to the spatial MT of the static image, and a kinematic term depending on Time-to-Collision (a motion support). We examine potential applications of this property for the recovery of image motion from integral image brightness measurements and the computation of Time-To-Collision using spatiotemporal MT analysis.</p>
