How to find the center position under the saturation spot signal

7 views (last 30 days)
Hello, I would like to seek your help. I have an image below. How can I find the spot position centre (X,Y) under the saturation spot signal?
The code as below
clear all; close all;clc
D = 'C:\Users\Admin\Desktop';
S = dir(fullfile(D,'*.bmp')); % pattern to match filenames.
%%-------open file----
S_BG = dir(fullfile(D,'figure.bmp')); % pattern to match filenames.
for k_BG = 1:numel(S_BG)
F_BG = fullfile(D,S_BG(k_BG).name);
I_BG = imread(F_BG);
Z = im2double(I_BG);
Z = rgb2gray(Z);

Try converting the image to binary using imbinarize and then using regionprops to compute the centroid.
rgb = imread('image.bmp');
I = rgb2gray(rgb);
bw = imbinarize(I);
s = regionprops(bw,'Centroid')
s = struct with fields:
Centroid: [202.0826 195.7218]
hold on
hold off
Alternatively, consider computing a weighted centroid using the grayscale pixel values. First, expand the binarized object using dilation to include more of the grayscale pixel values at the edge of the object.
bw2 = imdilate(bw,strel('disk',20));
s2 = regionprops(bw2,I,'WeightedCentroid')
s2 = struct with fields:
WeightedCentroid: [202.0307 195.3167]
hold on
hold off
