Part of the book: Advanced Topics in Measurements
Technological developments help us to make our lives easier, such as video analysis systems. Because of that reason, these systems are commonly used in different fields. So, this kind of applications is rising these days. There are two important factors for widespread of this technology. The first factor is an increase of video capture performances at video processing units, and the second factor is decrease in prices of the video processing units. In this chapter, some general information is given about video processing technique and the information held by a LabVIEW application. As LabVIEW application, finger anthropometric measurements have been performed by utilizing the video analysis technique for agricultural machinery and instrument evolution. At the application, real-time anthropometric measurements have been done from instantly obtained video images. Real-time anthropometric measurements of video images were obtained from Ankara University Faculty of Agriculture students by using LabVIEW software. To check result accuracy, the obtained value was compared with the caliper measurements. After that differences between the results were examined statistically. In the performed study, all real-time video image values show that this system can be used effectively for real-time anthropometric measurements.
