Effects of Camera’s Movement Forms on Pollutant’s Automatic Extraction Algorithm

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8918)


The fast and accurate automatic extraction of pollutants on cameras of mobile robots plays a vital role in the follow-up camera’s automatic cleaning. Currently, most of the researches focus on the extraction algorithm for pollutants, and there are almost no relevant studies on the effects of camera’s movement forms on pollutant’s extraction algorithm. Consequently, this paper explores the impact on pollutant’s extraction algorithm when the camera is at the same speed, but in different movement forms, which provides some suggestions for the improvement of the pollutant’s automatic extraction algorithm.
