Abstract
Grouping disconnected edgels and forming quantitative descriptions of structural entities are fundamental tasks in image understanding. Our newly developed grouping algorithm, the Distributed Hough Transform (DHT), is capable of performing both of these tasks. The DHT uses the principle of proximity weighted symmetry (PWS). PWS is based upon non- accidentalness, viewpoint invariance, and new probabilistic models of projected angles and distances which use the assumption that boundaries of man-made objects can be represented by circular arcs and straight lines. Experimental results show that the DHT is a robust algorithm.
