Paper Abstract

Against the image characteristics of dial gauges, an automatic detection system of dial gauges is designed and implemented by using the technology of computer vision technology and digital image processing methods. Improved image subtraction method and adaptive threshold segmentation method is used for previous processing; a new method named as region-segmentation is proposed to partition the dial image, only the useful blocks of the dial image is processed no the other area, this method reduces the computation amount greatly, and improves the processing speed effectively. This method has been applied in the automatic detection system of dial gauges, which makes it possible for the detection of dial gauges to be finished intelligent, automatically and rapidly.
