The battle of image-processing algorithms for deformation monitoring
An engineering challenge
When considering smartphones as a part of a monitoring system the greatest challenge is making sense of the data. As an industry, we need image-processing tools that are easily accessible and compatible across multiple devices.
This event will bring together PhD students and researchers to demonstrate that free, available tools can be used to analyse deformations of both laboratory and real world structures from videos and photos collected with smartphones.
- From: Thursday 20 September 2018, 9.30 am
- To: Thursday 20 September 2018, 6 pm
- Location: Lecture Theatre 9, Newton building, Main Entrance, Nottingham Trent University, Goldsmith Street, Nottingham, NG1 4BU
- Booking deadline: Wednesday 19 September 2018, 3.00 pm
In July 2018 we launched an engineering challenge for those working in image processing for structural health monitoring, to analyse a set of images and videos of laboratory and real world structures that have been taken on a smartphone. Using pre-existing image-processing tools, the challenge was to detect and locate structural damage and estimate its severity, the results of the challenge will be presented as part of this event.
Through the latest developments in smartphone technology, we are able to capture high quality images and video to assess the structural performance of bridges. The installation of cameras not only saves the engineering industry time and money, but also significantly reduces the risk of working at height, and traffic disruption caused by road closures.
