A new procedure for reconstructing the transverse profile of worn-out tracks by means of the image-processing technique is studied. In order to analyze the image of a track plane section, the first step of the procedure is the edge detection of the transverse profile through Canny's algorithm. This algorithm examines the behavior of the gradient operator applied to a noisy contour. Moreover, the algorithm is able to distinguish some clearer pixels near the track edge which do not belong to its micro-wrinkles, obtained from an enlargement of the upper profile of the railhead. For every chromatic plane of the analyzed image, a median filter is applied. The centroid position of the worn-out track and its contour coordinates were determined, gathered from Freeman's algorithm developed on the result formalized by relations after carrying out the proper morphological closing operations. The distances between the two profiles have been determined by the intercepts of the straight lines from the centroid of the profile IT
