Railway fastener detection is an important task in railway maintenance to ensure safety. However, the earlier detection methods based on computer vision have good performance on missing fasteners, but they have weaker ability to recognize the partially worn ones. In this paper, we exploit the axis-symmetrical structure to generate the first and second symmetry sample of original testing fastener image, and integrate the first and second image for improved representation-based fastener

Second, the symmetry image is helpful for representation-based fastener recognition and we can obtain an accurate judgment of the original testing image by integrate the corresponding judgments of two symmetry image. The experiment results show that our proposed method can achieve a rather high precision.
