Choosing the centroid of an specific shape
1 view (last 30 days)
I am trying to get the centre of a metallic cylinder ( see picture) using "regionprops" function. However, I get 100+ results. How can I choose the point closest to the centre? . Is there any way to focus on the metallic shape only ?

Here. I tried to clean up the screenshot so that it's at least usable for a demo. Instead of using imadjust(), and trying to isolate the object by gray level alone, use the available color information to make the selection. You can try using the Color Thresholder App to get an idea of where to set the thresholds.
inpict = imread('clean.png');
% create simple mask in HSV
hsvpict = rgb2hsv(inpict);
mask = hsvpict(:,:,2)>0.375;
% clean up mask
mask = bwareafilt(mask,1); % select largest object
mask = bwconvhull(mask); % fill the blob by taking the convex hull
S = regionprops(mask,'centroid')
Note that the poor subject-background contrast and the uneven illumination are causing a lot of the problems here. If the script needs to handle many images, the variations are likely to require adjusting the thresholds unless you improve the physical setup.
