Infrared thermography is a non-invasive technology that can be used in agriculture, construction, manufacturing and pharmaceutical industries for fault detection and to check the quality of an object. This helps to monitor temperature and analyze the high temperature zone so as to prevent the electrical assets from any catastrophe that may happen in future. The infrared camera generates a color image which needs to be segmented. The authors have developed a method by using the watershed city block distance transform algorithm for the faulty image segmentation.
