This paper introduces a method that uses multiple-view videos to estimate the 3D position of a badminton shuttle that moves quickly and anomalously. When an object moves quickly, it is observed with a motion blur effect. By utilizing the information provided by the shape of the motion blur region, we propose a visual tracking method for objects that have an erratic and drastically changing moving speed. When the speed increases tremendously, we propose another method, which applies the shape-from-silhouette technique, to estimate the 3D position of a moving shuttlecock using unsynchronized multiple-view videos. We confirmed the effectiveness of our proposed technique using video sequences and a CG simulation image set.
