Estimation of Egomotion Velocity from a single static image

 Velocity estimation based on visual information is a well researched topic. Traditional approaches usually rely on how a given feature or features change between successive images in a sequence. However, a  single static image might contain motion  information that could potentially be leveraged to estimate the instantaneous velocity. It can be hypothesized that motion blur and context of the scene are  two sources of  motion information in static images. Thus, this research work aims   to investigate the prospect of using a  learning based framework to model a  mapping directly from pixel space to camera velocity and analyzing the  contributing features in learning such a mapping.
