Abstract

A novel method of near-field computer vision (NFCV) was developed to monitor the jet trajectory during the jetting process, which was used to precisely predict the falling point position of the jet trajectory. By means of a high-resolution webcam, the NFCV sensor device collected near-field images of the jet trajectory. Preprocessing of collected images was carried out, which included squint image correction, noise elimination, and jet trajectory extraction. The features of the jet trajectory in the processed image were extracted, including: start-point slope (SPS), end-point slope (EPS), and overall trajectory slope (OTS) based on the proposed mean position method. A multiple regression jet trajectory range prediction model was established based on these trajectory characteristics and the reliability of the model was verified. The results show that the accuracy of the prediction model is not less than 94% and the processing time is less than 0.88s, which satisfy the requirements of real-time online jet trajectory monitoring.
