# Coordinates of centre of gravity

Hi,

I want to analyze a matrix (1 plane, 2 dimensions) and get coordinates of the centre of gravity. I can’t really explain it much clearer but here’s an example of what I want:

input:

1 0 0
0 0 1
0 0 0

output:

x=1, y=0.5

Another example:

2 0 0
0 0 1
0 0 0

output:

x=0.66, y=0.33

…I hope this is clear?

I think that the calculations should be something like this:

(0 * sum of all cells in row 0/ sum of all cells in matrix) +
(1 * sum of all cells in row 1/ sum of all cells in matrix) +
etc. = y

… and of course the same thing goes for the columns.

But how can I do this efficiently?

I’m not sure yet on how to use FTM for this kind of calculations but I’ll find out. And thanks for the tip, ’cause FTM seems to be a BIG improvement in the max-world! I haven’t heard of it before…

cv.jit.centroids does do that. also tap.jit.sum, I think.
