@Hello World It is your project and this thread is over 7 years old. You can find guidelines for posting homework on this forum here. If you have trouble with Matlab basics you may consider doing the Onramp tutorial (which is provided for free by Mathworks).

Sure this is possible with MATLAB. Tool related this sounds pretty simple with Image Acquisition Toolbox and some basic commands.
The important non-tool related question is about the quality of the picture (alwas the same background? contrast? etc.) andd the claibration (Always the same situation? Something we know its size to compare)
