A Shortest Path Approach for Vibrating Line Detection and Tracking
This paper describes an approach based on the shortest path method for the detection and tracking of vibrating lines. The detection and tracking of vibrating structures, such as lines and cables, is of great importance in areas such as civil engineering, but the specificities of these scenarios make it a hard problem to tackle. We propose a two-step approach consisting of line detection and subsequent tracking. The automatic detection of the lines avoids manual initialization - a typical problem of these scenarios - and favors tracking. The additional information provided by the line detection enables the improvement of existing algorithms and extends their application to a larger set of scenarios.
