Otsu’s thresholding algorithm

1. The MATLAB code is attached to this PDF in a ‘/code’ folder.

2. The mean gray level in the original image is 87.251125 (calculated using mean(I) function).

3. The gray value associated with the Otsu threshold is 96. Comparing to the mean value of the

image it’s a little larger, but because the measure is from 0 to 255, it is only ~3% difference.

4. My Otsu threshold implementation results are pretty close to the to the MATLAB’s

implementation of Otsu thresholding using the graythresh function – threshold of 97 (in my

implementation) and 96 in the MATLAB implementation. We can see that the two results are

almost similar.
