Abstract

The advantages deriving from a hierarchical imp1ementation of the “Labeled Hough Transform” are pointed out. It offers flexibility? confidence and a reduced computation time. Moreover it furnishes more information? useful when we face the partial occlusion problem. After a description of the technique and its main characteristics, we present some encouraging experimental results obtained with artificial images.
