A relaxation process is described and is applied to the detection of smooth lines and curves in noisy, real world images. There are nine labels associated with each image point, eight labels indicating line segments at various orientations and one indicating the no-line case. Attached to each label is a probability. In the relaxation process, interaction takes place among the probabilities at neighboring points. This permits line segments in compatible orientations to strengthen one another… CONTINUE READING
