Paper Abstract

In order to improve the efficiency and accuracy of pipes counting, a system was designed based on the machine vision and image processing technology in this paper, which can automatically count the number of the pipes online. Firstly, the image was captured by CCD and input into computer for processing. Then, a kind of gray image preprocessing methods such as denoising, binary conversion, mathematical morphology have been conducted. Finally, an accurate counting strategy of pipe image is adopted based on 8-neighborhood region labeling algorithm. Experiment results show that this method is convenient, and it is effective to deal with the conglutination problems and enhances the accuracy of the pipe automatic counting.
