30 March 2015 Weighted Radon transform for line detection in noisy images
Author Affiliations +
In the practice of line detection applications based on Radon transform (RT), noise and clutter decrease the sharpness of the RT local peaks, which correspond to linear edges in the original image. We suggest a new approach to line detection on gray-scale images using the so-called weighted Radon transform (WRT). The proposed WRT-based approach exploits gradient direction information in such a way that only the gradient component perpendicular to the line direction is integrated to form a local peak corresponding to the line. Theoretical and experimental studies have shown the effectiveness of the suggested WRT-based line detection method.
