Abstract
Hough transform (HT) is a well estab-lished method for curve detection and recognition due to its robustness and in-sensitiveness to noise, and its parallel processing capability. However, HT is quite time-consuming. In this paper, an eliminating particle swarm optimization (EPSO) algorithm is studied to improve the speed of a Hough transform. The so-lutions of Hough transformation are con-sidered as the particles positions, and the EPSO algorithm searches the optimum solution by eliminating the “weakest” particles to speed up the computation. An accumulation array in Hough transforma-tion is utilized as a fitness function of the EPSO algorithm. The experiments on numerous images show that the proposed approach can be used to detect curves or contours of both noise-free and noisy im-ages with much better performance. Es-pecially, for noisy images, it can archive much better results than that obtained by using the existing HT algorithms.
