set_planar_calib_deformable_model_metric — Set the metric of a planar calibrated deformable model that was created
from XLD contours.
set_planar_calib_deformable_model_metric changes the value of the
Metric that was selected during the creation of the
ModelID from XLD contours. Because no information
about the polarity of the model contours is available for XLD contours, the
polarity is determined based on a representative
Image. For this,
the model contours are mapped to the respective position where the object
appears in the
Pose, which can be obtained by
a previous call to
Metric then determines the conditions under which the
model is recognized later in the search image. If
'use_polarity', the object in the image and the model must have the
same contrast. If, e.g., the model is a bright object on a dark
background, the object is found only if it is also brighter than the
Metric = 'ignore_global_polarity', the
object is found in the image also if the contrast reverses globally. In the
above example, the object hence is also found if it is darker than the
background. The runtime of
will increase slightly in this case.
It must be ensured that the object contours in the
Image have the
same (or inverse) polarity as the object contours in the image in which the
object must be searched later. Especially, the object must not be occluded
Image and the background must be either brighter than the
object or darker. Otherwise, the determined polarity of the model contour
will not represent the polarity of the object contour during the search.
Note that only the polarity of the contours is determined, not their
contrast. Note also that the polarity is determined from a single-channel
image, only. If a multi-channel image is passed in
Image, only the
first channel will be used (and no error message will be returned).
A typical proceeding is to read the XLD contours from file. Since these XLD
contours do not provide polarity information, the model must be created
from the XLD contours by setting the parameter
'ignore_local_polarity'. Then, in a first search image the model
is recognized. The transformation that maps the model contours to the
position of the object in the search image
Pose can be determined
from the matching result. To verify the match interactively, the model
contours can be mapped to this position. If the matching result is correct,
the value of the parameter
Metric can be changed, e.g., to
'use_polarity'. This leads to a faster and more robust recognition
in the following images.
set_planar_calib_deformable_model_metric can only be used with
deformable models that were created from XLD contours.
This operator modifies the state of the following input parameter:
During execution of this operator, access to the value of this parameter must be synchronized if it is used across multiple threads.
→object (byte / uint2)
Input image used for the determination of the polarity.
ModelID(input_control, state is modified) deformable_model
Handle of the model.
→(real / integer)
Pose of the model in the image.
Number of elements: 7
Default value: 'use_polarity'
List of values: 'ignore_global_polarity', 'use_polarity'
If the parameters are valid, the operator
set_planar_calib_deformable_model_metric returns the value TRUE. If
necessary, an exception is raised.
