    To achieve sub-pixel accuracy the correlation algorithms use gray value interpolation:
    • Optimization algorithms require the criterion to be continuous over its parameter space
    • Images are discrete: we need to reconstruct the continuous information by means of
    • B-Splines are a good choice for that purpose
