Title: PROCESS AND SYSTEM TO ANALYZE DEFORMATIONS IN MOTOR VEHICLES
Abstract:
A system and a process are described to automatically identify, analyze and estimate deformations in motor vehicles, through the following steps: loading image data relevant for a three-dimensional image of a damaged vehicle in a vehicle images memory; recalling the image data of a three-dimensional image of a sample vehicle from a database of images of sample vehicles; displaying image data relevant for the image of damaged vehicle and the corresponding type of undamaged vehicle; automatically comparing the three-dimensional image of the damaged vehicle with the corresponding three-dimensional image of the sample vehicle identifying, through an automatic comparison between said two images: damage position or deformation and detecting the distorted regions; selecting the damaged or distorted regions identified from the automatic comparison on one of the two images; storing image pixels and respective image data selected as corresponding to the damaged or distorted regions as result of the comparison in a memory of a working program; computing perimeter, area and/or volume from the damaged or distorted region or regions and/or further morphologic parameters through algorithms implemented by a working program, and/or identifying the position in the space of the damage on the vehicle using the computing algorithm implemented by the working program on distorted regions and/or on results of said comparison stored in the memory of working programs; computing a deformation severity degree and assigning the deformation severity degree to every damaged or distorted region; computing labor times and costs for repairing the damaged or distorted area, starting from such computed perimeter, area and/or volume and/or morphologic parameters, using a database of available repair times and costs for every type of vehicle; and producing a virtual image of the sample vehicle which is composed of the set of virtual images of the single structural parts of the vehicle which form independent structural units, namely single parts of the vehicle, which virtual image is displayed as image of the assembled vehicle or as image of the exploded vehicle, every structural part of the vehicle being univocally identified by an identifying code, and corresponding to the same structural part of the damaged vehicle.
