View and sort components in the BoM, including the populate status, and get the centroid data needed for assembly.
It consists of two separate phases including the k centroids of cluster to be calculated and the nearest centroid for each color to be found.
Both centroid-linkage and Ward's method are applicable to the clutter removal problem because the overlap of representative icons is checked based on the distance between cluster centroids. The merging process continues until the distance between the centroids of the next two clusters to be merged exceeds a threshold that guarantees no overlap.
This step involves selecting k initial centroids C = {[c.sub.j], 0 < j < k} from the instance space, where k is the number of clusters [10].
(4) Use the Laplace's mechanism to add the noises Lap(k*[DELTA]Q/[epsilon]) into the set J, where the noises are added into the polygon centroids, and then generate the set G (see Section 4.3 for more details);
Because the sun elevation has a strong correlation with the sun imaging position, Figure 13 directly shows the trajectories of the sun image centroids of the three tests on the image plane.
Firstly, the centroids of the clusters are initialized.
Vertebrae segmentation is vitally important to extract centroids for scoliosis recognition.
The next step is to take each point belonging to a given data set and associate it to the nearest centroid. When no point is pending, the first step is completed and an early clustering is done.
