Abstract

Provided are a processing device, a detecting system, a processing method, a program, and a storage medium that obtain a position of a weld portion of a joined body with higher accuracy. A processing device according to an embodiment receives intensity data of a reflected wave obtained by transmitting an ultrasonic wave along a first direction toward a joined body. The device designates a weld portion of the joined body by using the intensity data. The device calculates a first center position of the weld portion in a first plane crossing the first direction.
