### Coordinates of centre of gravity

Nov 23 2006 | 11:36 pm

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 think there might be an object in cv.jit that does this calculation
for you… cv.jit.centroid.

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.
