Accurate and reliable pose estimation of boom-type roadheader is of great importance in order to maintain the efficiency of automatic coal mining. The stability and accuracy of conventional measurement methods are difficult to be guaranteed on account of vibration noise, magnetic disturbance, electrostatic interference and other factors in underground environment. In this paper a vision-based non-contact measurement method for cutting-head pose estimation is presented, which deploy a 16-point infrared LED target on the boom-type roadheader to tackle the low illumination, high dust and complicated background. By establishing monocular vision measurement system, the cutting-head pose is estimated through processing the LED target images obtained from an explosion-proof industrial camera mounted on the roadheader. After analyzing the measurement mechanism, an underground camera model based on the equivalent focal length is built to eliminate refraction errors caused by the two layer glasses for explosion-proof and dust removal glasses. Then the pose estimation processes, including infrared LEDs feature points extraction, spot center location, improved P4P method based on dual quaternions, are carried out. The influence factors of cutting-head pose estimation accuracy is further studied by modeling, and the error distribution of the main parameters is investigated and evaluated. Numerical simulation and experimental evaluation are designed to verify the performance of the proposed method. The results show that the pose estimation error is in line with the numerical prediction, achieving the requirements of cutting-head pose estimation in underground roadway construction in coal mine.
