Automatic Detection Of Circular Objects By Ellipse Growing

  title={Automatic Detection Of Circular Objects By Ellipse Growing},
  author={Kenichi Kanatani and Naoya Ohta},
  journal={Int. J. Image Graphics},
We present a new method for automatically detecting circular objects in images: we detect an osculating circle to an elliptic arc using a Hough transform, iteratively deforming it into an ellipse, removing outlier pixels, and searching for a separate edge. The voting space is restricted to one and two dimensions for efficiency, and special weighting schemes are introduced to enhance the accuracy. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our method using real images. Finally, we apply our method to… CONTINUE READING
