Tripwire Detection for Landmines

Budd, Chris and Stockie, John (1998) Tripwire Detection for Landmines. [Study Group Report]



Pre-processed Radon transform-based detection methods were identified as the most viable technique. There are some issues that arose when testing the various methods. A) The 'log' edge detection in Matlab seemed better than the default 'sobel' method, but is still worth considering other edge detection algorithms that might deal more effectively with noisy or grainy image. B) The algorithm works best when the wire is horizontal and spans the length of the image. If constrained to thin-strip type images then a simple solution is to run the algorithm twice, once with the image and a second time with the same image rotated through 45 degrees.
