Paper Abstract

Pantograph carbon slide is an important device in power supply system of electric locomotive, the pantograph location is greatly significant for the geometric parameter measurement of the pantograph-catenary system. In order to enhance the adaptability of pantograph detection algorithm to the scene, and to reduce the false rate and missing rate of pantograph detection, this paper proposes a novel method based on the pantograph template for fast matching and horizontal edge detection projection in monocular infrared pantograph images. Firstly, the prior knowledge of the position of the pantograph and the catenary is combined with the template matching method to realize the rough location of the pantograph, and then the precise location of the pantograph by horizontal edge detection and horizontal unilateral projection. The experimental results show that this novel adaptive method realizes the non-contact detection and location of the pantograph effectively, and improve the efficiency significantly.
