Paper Title:
An Efficient Image-Based Method for Detection of Fastener on Railway
  Abstract

This paper presents an efficient method to detect the fastener based on the technologies of image processing and optical detection. As feature descriptor, the Direction Field of fastener image is computed for template matching. This fastener detection method can be used to determine the status of fastener on the corresponding track, i.e., whether the fastener is on the track or missing. Experimental results are presented to show that the proposed method is computation efficiency and is robust for fastener detection in complex environment.
