This paper puts forward to a novel intelligent methods to reading point instrument to replace human reading. The images of pointer instrument are captured. Firstly a segmentation algorithm based on unsupervised learning is presented to segment the image for locating the scales and pointer. This algorithm combines the fuzzy C-means method with fuzzy support vector machines, and can subdivide the image into the objects and background efficiently. Secondly the according to the characteristic of

At last the reading value of pointer instrument is determined. The Experiments prove the method presented by this paper is effective.
