Paper Abstract

This article shows the application of the advantages offered by the SURF algorithm for the detection of points of interest in the video images, which are monitored in real time, of the concrete units that form a breakwater. This procedure of monitoring and analysis of the images allows determining the displacement suffered by the elements or shells of the breakwater and consequently the damages submerge the breakwaters. This technique is applied in modeling studies in hydraulic coastal laboratories. Damage can be weighted as a percentage of the total number of armor units on the slope of the breakwater, per unit of area covered by video camera monitoring and digital image processing with the SURF algorithm to determine the movements of the elements of the housing properly and efficiently.
