Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR PERFORMING AN INSPECTION INSIDE A MACHINE
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS PERMETTANT LA RÉALISATION D'UNE INSPECTION À L'INTÉRIEUR D'UNE MACHINE
Abstract:
(EN) A method for performing an inspection inside a machine includes inserting a remote controlled vehicle into the machine, wherein the remote controlled vehicle includes at least one camera. The remote controlled vehicle is directed along a path inside the machine. A plurality of images are captured inside the machine with the at least one camera. The images are processed to generate a panoramic image and/or a 3D image. The panoramic image and/or the 3D image are displayed on a display.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé permettant d'effectuer une inspection à l'intérieur d'une machine comprenant l'insertion d'un véhicule télécommandé dans la machine, le véhicule télécommandé comprenant au moins une caméra. Le véhicule télécommandé est dirigé le long d'un trajet à l'intérieur de la machine. Une pluralité d'images sont capturées à l'intérieur de la machine à l'aide desdites caméras. Les images sont traitées afin de générer une image panoramique et/ou une image 3D. L'image panoramique et/ou l'image 3D sont affichées sur un dispositif d'affichage.
