Corrosion Detection


The Datalab is investigating multiple applications of computer vision. One of those applications is corrosion detection. The goal is to insert a picture of a pipe or valve and the application will return the verdict: the pipe or valve has corrosion, or is free of rust.

This concept is now in the Proof of Concept phase. We have build a working algorithm which reports whether a valve or pipe has corrosion, and the algorithm works in almost 80% of the tested cases.

Next steps are to further develop the model to also return where the corrosion is located on the photo and the state of the corrosion.

If you are interested in this application or another application of computer vision, do not hesitate to contact us!
