(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDE DE CAPTURE ET D'AFFICHAGE D'IMAGES DE L'INFRASTRUCTURE DE VEHICULES
Abstract
(EN)
A portable undercarriage vehicle inspection system (UVIS) (100) uses an under vehicle imaging (UVI) module (110) to capture an image of the undercarriage of a vehicle. The UVIS also includes multiple scene cameras (120) that capture the associated vehicle scene images. The scene cameras are easy to view and manipulate. The undercarriage image and the associated vehicle scene images are provided to a power and communications unit (PCU) (140) through a network (130) such as Ethernet. These images may be stored in a database repository connected to the network. A notebook computer will serve as an operator workstation (150, 152, 154) for display of real-time, as well as historical, vehicular records. An operator viewing the images can enter additional information related to the images, such as comments and remarks, and archive all of the information for future reference and comparisons.

Un système portatif d'inspection d'infrastructure de véhicules (UVIS) (100) utilise un module (110) d'imagerie sous-véhicule (UVI) pour capturer une image de l'infrastructure d'un véhicule. L' UVIS comprend également de multiples caméras (120) qui capturent des images associées de scènes du véhicule. Les caméras offrent une facilité de visualisation et de manipulation. L'image de l'infrastructure ainsi que les images associées du véhicule sont fournies à une unité d'alimentation et de communication (PCU) (140) à travers un réseau (130) tel qu'Ethernet. Ces images peuvent être stockées dans un référentiel de bases de données connecté au réseau. Un ordinateur portatif sert de poste de travail à l'opérateur (150, 152, 154) pour afficher en temps réel des fichiers de véhicules ainsi que des historiques. Un opérateur visualisant les images peut saisir des informations supplémentaires relatives aux images telles que des commentaires et des remarques, il peut également archiver toutes les informations pour des références et des comparaisons futures.
