Real-time power line extraction from unmanned aerial system video images
Yuee, Liu & Mejias, Luis (2012) Real-time power line extraction from unmanned aerial system video images. In 2nd International Conference on Applied Robotics for the Power Industry, 11-13 September 2012, ETH Zurich, Switzerland.
In this paper a real-time vision based power line extraction solution is investigated for active UAV guidance. The line extraction algorithm starts from ridge points detected by steerable filters. A collinear line segments fitting algorithm is followed up by considering global and local information together with multiple collinear measurements. GPU boosted algorithm implementation is also investigated in the experiment. The experimental result shows that the proposed algorithm outperforms two baseline line detection algorithms and is able to fitting long collinear line segments. The low computational cost of the algorithm make suitable for real-time applications.
