Measure the droplet diameter

#1

Dear KNIME developers and Users,

I am doing a project that is required to measure the droplet diameter. I am trying to measure the diameter by analyzing the image. Can some one could give me a hint to cope with this problem? what could be the workflow for this task? I include my sample picture below.
Hope to have some support from the community.
thank you very much!

Hi @Martyna,
I am very glad for your response
I’ve tried to start with simple work to detect the droplet but when I crop the image to apply the Global thresholder but it turned out not working.

what could I do to improve the detecting algorithm?
thank you

and the data from the the interactive table. How can we convert it from pixel to mm? is there any node or method to convert the unit in Knime?
I measure and got some result but I could not convert it back to mm
thank you

Hi @TruySaigon,
I would start by subtracting the average over all your images from each image. If you look into the linked post there should be a bit on it, if you upload a few more example pictures, I can take a look myself.

I would be very grateful if you could help me with this problem, please

Thank you very much

High @TruySaigon,
the images that you uploaded are very small, I can’t really do much with them. I thought you would upload a few more like the one from your first post.

best,
Gabriel

Hi @gab1one,
these are the original pictures of them.
I thought I might change them to a green background for better detection.

I hope that you could have a look at them, please!!!
thank you very much

Hi @gab1one,
After reading through some reference,
I have come up with the workflow in the attached file.
but when I tried out with different flow rates, the results are not consistent.
in the Quantile Filter node, I always have to vary the value of quantile and span numbers.
To be honest, I haven’t known how to correct those values.
I hope you could have a look at the workflow and suggest some ideas that I could improve it.

Thank you very much
I am looking forward to hearing from you
Best regards,

Duy
