adaptthresh() - Image Processing

T = adaptthresh(I) computes a locally adaptive threshold that can be used with the imbinarize function to convert an intensity image to a binary image.

The result, T, is a matrix the same size as I containing normalized intensity values in the range [0, 1].

adaptthresh chooses the threshold based on the local mean intensity (first-order statistics) in the neighborhood of each pixel.

T = adaptthresh(I,sensitivity) computes a locally adaptive threshold with sensitivity factor specified by sensitivity. sensitivity is a scalar in the range [0 1] that indicates sensitivity towards thresholding more pixels as foreground.

T = adaptthresh(___,Name,Value) computes a locally adaptive threshold using name-value pairs to control aspects of the thresholding.

Code Generation support: Yes.

MATLAB Function Block support: Yes.
