In Hough [1], Duda and Hart [2], and Griffith [3] procedures were proposed for detecting lines in pictures and in [2] Duda and Hart extended their method for more general algebraic curve, fitting. This correspondence shows how this method can be used to detect any given curve in a specific orientation. The procedure presented here con be easily implemented and can be efficiently implemented in a parallel machine.
