Image Processing for Transmission Lines
This project is developing image processing cameras that can be installed on transmission lines to automatically measure and report activity. The cameras measure the following:
- Conductor motion
- ROW intrusion
- Avian interactions
The cameras are paired with the solar-powered base stations that collect the RF sensor data.
Project Phases: Lab Testing and Demonstration
Algorithms have been developed and implemented on commercially-available cameras to measure conductor blowout and instruction. Images can be collected based on the measurements or when commanded. The cameras have been paired with the base stations and are currently being tested in the laboratory for reliability and integration with reporting software.
|Task||Due Date||Completed||% Complete|
