Abstract

A novel new sensing technology is developed in this proposal to detect uneven corrosion through light reflectance analysis. The goal of the project is to augment current corrosion detection practice using UAS. Objectives include determining reflectance properties of uneven corrosion, extracting highly associated reflectance features with corrosion, and comparing conventional visual imagery with the proposed technology in corrosion detection.
