As tongue analysis come under non- invasive method one can easily go for it without any fear for expensive invasive methods. In non invasive method like tongue analysis Experts opinion play very important role which also, hinders proper analysis. A reliable automated tongue analysis system may overcome this problem. This paper focuses on two major problem faced while using automated tongue analysis system i.e. proper position of tongue for maximum area coverage and better thresholding method to get area of interest.
