Line Detection Using Radon Transform

H. H. Abbas; Hussein Ali Hussein

Engineering and Technology Journal, 2010, Volume 28, Issue 6, Pages 1267-1280

To extract features from digital images, it is useful to be able to find simple
shapes (straight lines, circles, ellipses, etc.).
In order to achieve this goal, one can be able to detect a group of pixels that are on
a straight line or a smooth curve. That is what a Hough transform is supposed to
do.
Since the Hough transform is a special case of Radon transform then line detection
process is accomplished using Radon transform.
In this paper, software for line detection using Radon transform has been designed
and implemented. Then the implemented software is tested under many conditions
and circumstances, the results are discussed, and many points are concluded from
the results.
