The Generalized Hough Transform (GHT) is a well known image processing transform to find arbitrary shapes in images. We propose a new raster scan FPGA and VSLI hardware architecture, performing the GHT of a binary template shape with an input image. The architecture has a minimized critical path by the reuse of partial results and the utilization of a flat… CONTINUE READING
