Error in function interp1: Sample points must be unique.

240 views (last 30 days)
I am running multiple patient files in my matlab script. These files are all the same, however, by just one file I get this error:
Error using matlab.internal.math.interp1
Sample points must be unique.
Error in interp1 (line 188)
VqLite = matlab.internal.math.interp1(X,V,method,method,Xqcol);
My script around this error is as following:
tv_interval = tv_before - polyval(coef_tv, time_interval);
rf_interval = rf_before - polyval(coef_rf, time_interval);
ve_interval = ve_before - polyval(coef_ve, time_interval);
ti_interval = ti_before - polyval(coef_ti, time_interval);
te_interval = te_before - polyval(coef_te, time_interval);
new_time = transpose([0:1:time_interval(end)]);
tv_interval = interp1(time_interval, tv_interval,new_time);
rf_interval = interp1(time_interval, rf_interval,new_time);
ve_interval = interp1(time_interval, ve_interval,new_time);

You can use unique() to get rid of duplicate sample points. It will also sort them.

If you use interp1 as
yq = interp1(x,y,xq)
the vector x must contain unique values and must be sorted in descending or ascending order.
min x <= xq <= max x
should be true.
Are these conditions satisfied in your application ?

I looked through the code, however I do not see that you ever actually created a timetable object (introduced in R2016b). The best option will likely be to do tthat, and then use the retime function to do the time interpolation (that appears to be what you want to do, although I cannot determine that definitively).
