Corporation work piece length measure system based on digital image processing technology. CCD vidicon is used as the image capture equipment. Image signal are converted into 8 bits digital code stream by CMOS image sensor chip OV9650. DSP chip of TI is used as the core of image processing in the scheme. Peripheral SDRAM are expanded through peripheral bus to save the large amounts of temporary data in data processing to reduce the time for image processing. Median filtering is adopted in image enhance of the object image. The length of rectangle work piece can be measured in the distance by untouched way by improved edge recognition algorithm in real time. The measurement result is displayed by LCD. Meanwhile the measure system communicates with PC through communication interface. It has been proved that the system can guarantee real-time and high accurate. It’s a typical instance of DSP and digital image processing technology used in industry.
