Discussion on Excavation Monitoring Schemes Based on Image Processing


Article Preview

This study breaks through traditional displacement and inclination monitoring methods in excavation engineering, and proposes for the first time that combining excavation engineering with subjects such as Iconology, Signal Processing and Wireless Sensor Network, use Digital Signal Processing, Digital Image Processing, and Micro-Displacement Sensing technology for monitoring and processing various types of displacement. Then collect all monitoring points’ information through Internet of Things technology into database processing platform for processing, in order to achieve automatic real-time monitoring.
