Paper Abstract

Encouraging results are presented for the automatic analysis of radiographic images of a continuous stream of ISO containers to confirm they are truly empty. A series of image processing algorithms are described that process real-time data acquired during the actual inspection of each container and assigns each to one of the classes "empty", "not empty" or "suspect threat". This research is one step towards achieving fully automated analysis of cargo containers.
