In image, we have two boundaries (M- inner boundary and N-outer boundary). Suppose M boundary has 1000 points and N has 1500 points. I want to calculate the distance and angle from point V(fixed point) to boundary M. How will i calculate the minimum diatance from point M on the boundary m to boundary N (for every point on the boundary m) ??

You can do that in multiple ways, one way
• Segment both boundaries into two separate images.
• Store the pixel indices in a cell array (two cell array)
• Calculate the Euclidean distance between each pair of indices (all possible combinations).
• Find the minimum distance value.
I hope this helps!
