How to get the distance references of geometry and curvature of the object?

2 views (last 30 days)
Dear members, I would be truly grateful if you could assist me in extracting automatically the distances indicated in the image and obtaining the curvature of its extreme points on the right and left. My goal now is to obtain the curvature of the object as it flows.
Could you please guide me on the correct approach for achieving this?
I have tried to obtain the distances but it was manual.

% Load the image
I = imread('20000002002.bmp');
% Binarize
BW = imbinarize(I);
% Extract the ROI
BW = ~BW;
se = strel("disk", 5);
BW = imopen(BW, se);
BW = imclearborder(BW);
BW = bwareafilt(BW, 1);
BW = imfill(BW, "holes");
% Calculate the centroid
s = regionprops(BW, "Centroid");
% Calculate the extreme points
idx = any(BW);
pt1 = find(idx, 1);
pt2 = find(idx, 1, "last");
% Visualize the result
hold on
% Adiciona uma linha vertical constante em x = 860
xline(860, "g", "X = 860", "FontSize", 18);
% Calcula a distância entre pt1 e 860
distancia_pt1_860 = abs(860 - pt1);
% Exibe as linhas e pontos
xline(pt1, "r", sprintf("X = %d", pt1), "FontSize", 18)
xline(pt2, "r", sprintf("X = %d", pt2), "FontSize", 18)
h = scatter(s.Centroid(1), s.Centroid(2), "r", "filled");
% Adiciona linhas horizontais com o centroide no meio delas
distancia_entre_linhas = 183;
linha_superior_y = s.Centroid(2) + distancia_entre_linhas/2;
linha_inferior_y = s.Centroid(2) - distancia_entre_linhas/2;
% Adiciona a linha superior
plot([pt1, pt2], [linha_superior_y, linha_superior_y], 'b', 'LineWidth', 1);
% Adiciona a linha inferior
plot([pt1, pt2], [linha_inferior_y, linha_inferior_y], 'b', 'LineWidth', 1);
% Adiciona os pontos extremos e o centroide
scatter([pt1, pt2, s.Centroid(1)], [linha_superior_y, linha_superior_y, s.Centroid(2)], "b", "filled");
% Adiciona os pontos extremos e o centroide
scatter([pt1, pt2, s.Centroid(1)], [linha_inferior_y, linha_inferior_y, s.Centroid(2)], "b", "filled");
% Exibe a distância entre pt1 e 860
disp(['Distância entre pt1 e x=860: ', num2str(distancia_pt1_860)]);

Why is there a chequerboard pattern in your image background? Can the image be retaken without it? Most of the effort in your code is devoted towards getting rid of it.

I do not know. I have not paid attention to that before. Now it would be difficult to retake these pictures.

I was able to do it with the help of some FEX downloads:
I'm not sure if it's a coincidence that the two circles intersect at the minimum dip point. You would know better than me, I'd imagine.
BW=imclose(imerode(BW,[1 0;0 1]),ones(2));
[xdip,ydip] %Minimum Dip Point
ans = 1×2
220 92
distance=abs(median(sborder(1).y)-median(sborder(4).y)) %distance ebtween top and bottom lines
distance = 180
XY=[sbullet.x, sbullet.y]';
circ1 =
circularFit with properties: center: [161.2045 153.6687] radius: 86.6585
circ2 =
circularFit with properties: center: [259.8320 153.7851] radius: 72.6716
imshow(BW);hold on
hold off
function s=boundaryXY(bw)
for i=1:numel(B)

What is showfit()? I've heard of the built-in viscircles but not showfit.
