Abstract: Most of industries around us make use of iron machines & tools for manufacturing their products. On the other hand corrosion is a natural process that deteriorates the integrity of iron surface. Therefore, rusting of iron takes place. To avoid unwanted accidents in industries, it is necessary to detect rusting in earlier stage, so that it can be prevented. Digital Image Processing for the detection of the rusting provides fast, accurate and objectives results. There have been many techniques for detection of rust. In this paper we are describing some existing techniques for detection of rusting. We have analyzed these techniques and made comparison based o their approaches, strengths and limitations.
