Paper Abstract

The detection of chemical plumes is a challenging task in the field of infrared image detection due to the diffusivity of gas plumes. As a general-purpose segmentation architecture, Mask R-CNN can output high-quality instance segmentation masks while efficiently detecting gases. However, Mask R-CNN cannot achieve accurate segmentation of deformable targets. Therefore, in this paper, an infrared image gas plume detection method based on the attention mechanism Mask R-CNN is proposed, which can effectively detect the gas plume in the image and segment the infrared image. First, the preprocessed image is imported into Feature Pyramid Networks (FPN) to obtain the corresponding feature map. Second, the feature map is sent to the regional offer network (RPN) to obtain candidate RoIs. Then, a ROI Align operation is performed on the candidate ROI. Finally, these ROIs are classified, Bounding-box regression, and Mask generation. And we attach the edge attention mechanism to the mask branch of Mask R-CNN to improve the detection accuracy. The experimental results show that the method is validated on the real infrared gas images, and competitive results with the prior art methods.
