Triangle Auto Threshold

Creates a binary image from a gray image using adaptive thresholding.

triangle_auto_threshold(device, img, maxvalue, object_type, xstep=1, debug=None)

returns device, thresholded image

  • Parameters:
    • device- Counter for image processing steps
    • img - grayscale img object
    • maxValue - value to apply above threshold (255 = white)
    • objecttype - 'light' or 'dark', is target image light or dark?
    • xstep - value to move along x-axis to determine the points from which to calculate distance recommended to start at 1 and change if needed)
    • debug- None, "print", or "plot". Print = save to file, Plot = print to screen. Default = None
  • Context:
    • Used to help differentiate plant and background
