By PClines and Other Approaches

Authors: Herout, Adam, Dubská, Markéta, Havel, Jiří

  • Analyzes the state of the art in PClines and its implementation, and surveys the latest research on HT-related line detection algorithms
  • Presents a fresh summary of line-detection algorithms, in a condensed textbook style
  • Discusses the latest work on the detection of vanishing points, parallel lines, chessboard-like structures and grids (e.g., 2D barcodes)

About this book

This text provides a survey of the latest research into the Hough transform for line detection and its contemporary developments. Written with students in mind, this work can serve as a condensed textbook and as a reference for practitioners working in computer vision. The text also presents an overview and detailed elaboration of recent research related to PClines – a line parameterization based on parallel coordinates. A detailed analysis of the concept is given, including implementation details and measurements. One chapter discusses the detection of chessboard-like patterns, and sets of parallel lines and lines coincident with one (vanishing) point – a topic with many applications, such as 2D barcodes, aerial images, and architecture recognition. The work summarizes recent research in the field, and analyses new advances achieved using the PClines parameterization.
