Abstract

Hough has proposed an interesting and computationally efficient procedure for detecting lines in pictures. In this paper we point out that the use of angle-radius rather than slope-intercept parameters simplifies the computation further. We also show how the method can be used for more general curve fitting, and give alternative interpretations that explain the source of its efficiency.
