Abstract

A real-time algorithm for generating the interior developed view of a drain pipe based on video taken by a robot-inspector is presented. The objective is to increase the efficiency of examination and maintenance of a drain pipe, and make it possible to check the situation of the drain pipe with an easy view. The key idea of the paper is to identify the central point of the drain pipe automatically based on the video image and connect the images as a development map of the drain pipe in real time. We described the Hough transform method and the Least-Squares method for searching the centre of the drain pipe in detail.
