Investigation of possibilities for predicting the physico-chemical parameters viscosity and density of automotive bio-oils using color image analysis is described in the paper. Data of bio oils is compared with those for standard engine oils. The results show that the oil density can be predicted with an accuracy of 85% and the viscosity at an accuracy of 57% with low error rates of 2-9% with R (RGB), G (RGB), V (HSV), L (Lab), L (LCH), and K (CMYK) color features. The results obtained can be used in the design of optical sensor devices operating in the visible area of the spectrum for rapid and non-destructive determination of physico-chemical parameters of automotive oils.
