An ROV Stereovision System for Ship-Hull Inspection

  title={An ROV Stereovision System for Ship-Hull Inspection},
  author={Shahriar S. Negahdaripour and Pezhman Firoozfam},
  journal={IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering},
Ship hulls, as well as bridges, port dock pilings, dams, and various underwater structures need to be inspected for periodic maintenance. Additionally, there is a critical need to provide protection against sabotage activities, and to establish effective countermeasures against illegal smuggling activities. Unmanned underwater vehicles are suitable platforms for the development of automated inspection systems, but require integration with appropriate sensor technologies.
