Automated Mobile pH Reader on a Camera Phone

  title={Automated Mobile pH Reader on a Camera Phone},
  author={B. Y. Loh and Nhu Khue Vuong and Syin Chan and Chiew Tong Lau},
A robust classification algorithm that applies color science and image processing techniques is developed to automatically identify the pH level on a test strip. This algorithm is implemented on a camera phone that captures color images of pH test strips for healthcare or medical purpose. The pre-installed and platform independent program in the camera cell phone then processes the images captured and is able to inform visually-challenged users of the pH level of the strip. Experimental results… Expand
Indicator-Impregnated Agarose Films for Colorimetric Measurement of pH
The developed indicator-impregnated agarose sensor films for colorimetric estimation of the pH of different standard buffer solutions and urine samples has potential application in the field of point-of-care diagnostics with high fidelity, multiplexing, and robust quantitative estimation. Expand
Measurement Of Soil PH Value Using HSV Color Space Value Of Image

Camera Models and Machine Perception
A parametric model for a computer-controlled moveable camera on a pan-tilt head that expresses the transform relating object space to image space as a function of the control variables of the camera is developed. Expand
Colour spaces: perceptual, historical and applicational background
In this paper, we present and overview of colour spaces used in electrical engineering and image processing. We stress the importance of the perceptual, historical and applicational background thatExpand
Color quantization by dynamic programming and principal analysis
This paper shows that by ordering the N colors along their principal axis and partitioning the color space with respect to this ordering, the resulting constrained optimization problem can be solved in O(N) time by dynamic programming. Expand
