Abstract
In the algorithm of extracting end points of insulator strings by image technology, we propose a method to find the Minimum Enclosing Rectangle (MER)of the target by using the the principal axis method based on the combination of the vertex chain code and the discrete Green theorem.Then the binary image of the extracted target is detected by edge detection and threshold segmentation the boundary image of the insulator string is drawn. Finally, the endpoints coordinates of the insulator string are extracted based on the shape feature of insulator string.The algorithm is implemented by MATLAB software,and the results show that the method is feasible.
