An underwater active vision system is proposed to support ROV guidance. The system exploits the temporal context in the image sequence to improve the precision in the computation of the pipeline contours, by adapting the processing mode dynamically. Disturbances of motion effect on acquired images are also partially removed by cascading a Kalman filter to an image processing module.
