Abstract: A safe operation protocol of the wind blades is a critical factor to ensure the stability of a wind turbine. Sensors are most commonly applied for defect detection on wind turbine blades (WTBs). However, due to the high cost and the sensitivity to stochastic noise, computer vision-guided automatic detection remains a challenge for surface defect detection on WTBs in particularly, its accuracy in locating defects is yet to be optimized. In this paper, we developed a visual inspection model that can automaticall…
