Foveated, log-polar, or space-variant image architectures provide a high resolution and wide field workspace, while providing a small pixel computation load. These characteristics are ideal for mobile robotic and active vision applications. Recently we have described a generalization of the Fourier Transform (the fast exponential chirp transform) which allows frame-rate computation of full-field 2D frequency transforms on a log-polar image format. In the present work, we use Wiener filtering, performed using the Exponential Chirp Transform, on log-polar (fovcated) image formats to de-blur images which have been degraded by uniform camera motion.
