—At present, the commonly used floc tracking
algorithms are susceptible to noise, light, and floc movement
speed, etc., it is difficult to extract complete moving flocs,
therefore put forward a flocs target detection algorithm based
on the three frame difference and particle swarm optimization
& enhanced method of the Otsu. The algorithm firstly conducts
difference of three consecutive frames, then use particle swarm
optimization & enhanced method of the Otsu to obtain the best
threshold, the optimal threshold is adopted to the image
binarization and then do image post-processing, eventually
obtaining a clear floc target, to lay a foundation for subsequent
automation analysis of floc. Experiments show that the
algorithm has the characteristics of fast, accurate, and can
extract flocs target effectively.
—Three frame difference, particle swarm
optimization & enhanced method of the Otsu, optimal
threshold, flocs target detection.
