Translation refers to shifting of object from one point to another.

Transformation matrix for translation is given by, T =

 1 0 tx 0 1 ty

Where,

tx and ty are the amount of translation in x and y axis respectively.

cv2.warpAffine():

To perform linear mapping, we can use cv2.warpAffine(image, transformation_matrix, shape) function which takes a 2×3 matrix and convert the image based on the passed transformation matrix. It has three arguments:

1. image: the image which we want to transform.
2. transformation_matrix: it is a 2×3 matrix which is used to transform the input image. We can perform rotation, translation and other transformations by changing the transformation matrix.
3. shape: it defines the shape(width, height) of the resultant image.

#### Implemented code in Python:

import cv2
import numpy as np

rows = img.shape[0];
cols = img.shape[1];

T = np.float32([[1,0,50],[0,1,25]]); #translation matrix

output_img = cv2.warpAffine(img, T, (cols,rows));

cv2.imshow('Original', img);
cv2.imshow('Output Image',output_img);

#wait for 10 seconds
cv2.waitKey(10000);
cv2.destroyAllWindows();

Output:
