AbstractNational Research Council’s Institute for Ocean Technology (NRC-IOT) has successfully applied image processing and data extraction techniques to measure structures and objects in images. This plays a key role in two major projects; IOT’s Marine Icing Monitoring System (MIMS) and Impact Module. By use of software developed at IOT, researchers are able to analyze ice accumulation remotely through cameras for MIMS, thus creating an automated warning system to identify hazardous icing events. Researchers are able to apply similar software to images captured by IOT’s Impact Module, to analyze pressure distribution for impacts. The impact module will be able to be mounted on vessels in the future for bergy bit trials, allowing for research of bergy bit collisions with vessels to occur. Image processing and data extraction has been proven to work effectively for both IOT’s Marine Icing Monitoring System and Impact Module, and will be used greatly in future analysis.
