LEVEL ICE THICKNESS MEASUREMENT USING SHIP-BASED SEMI-AUTOMATIC COMPUTER VISION
Author : Jakke Kulovesi , Jonni Lehtiranta
Ship crews typically measure level ice thickness visually. Such measurement is possible when a block of ice turns sideways and reveals its cross-section while aligned with a reference measure. These estimates are subjective and rely on the experience and skills of the observer. In addition, manually performed visual thickness estimates have a very limited resolution. Furthermore, the task of observing ice thickness is mentally taxing, especially when performed for extended periods of time. This paper presents a semi-automatic machine vision based solution to the aforementioned problems (subjectivity, resolution, and cognitive strain). This solution
