Events from video

Target: extract and analyse video footage from cameras on pylons in order to identify anomalies and patterns with a view to implementing predictive maintenance systems.

Data:
▪ Video footage from cameras on masts
▪ Hourly average information of variables collected by sensors

Implemented algorithms
▪  Algorithms for extracting images with potential discharges
▪  Algorithm based on neural networks for event location and intensity evaluation
▪  Algorithm based on optical flow techniques for image stabilization and discharge detection

Implemented interfaces
▪ Release of a docker containing extractor software for video and frame with potential discharges
▪ Release of a docker containing software for the analysis of frame with potential discharges
▪ Interface (webapp) for the end-user to analyse the results
