A new method presented in this paper to describe the movement of a camera mounted on a mobile platform using local Maximally Stable Extremal Region detector (MSER) algorithm. In fact, it was established that MSER tracker method is quicker than other methods and it needs less resources. Furthermore, MSER outperforms other interest points detection and matching algorithms. Using Motion Estimation (ME) technique to detect the direction and speed of the camera during a video recording demonstrates the reliability of the algorithm. Results indicate over 93 percent tracking accuracy in variant environment. The paper presents the details of algorithm, implementation setup and results for a set of recorded videos.
