An analogy is made between each straight line in an image and a planar propagating wavefront impinging on an array of sensors so as to obtain a mathematical model exploited in recent high resolution methods for direction-of-arrival estimation in sensor array processing. The new so-called SLIDE (subspace-based line detection) algorithm then exploits the spatial coherence between the contributions of each line in different rows of the image to enhance and distinguish a signal subspace that is defined by the desired line parameters. SLIDE yields closed-form and high resolution estimates for line parameters, and its computational complexity and storage requirements are far less than those of the standard method of the Hough transform. If unknown a priori, the number of lines is also estimated in the proposed technique. The signal representation employed in this formulation is also generalized to handle grey-scale images as well. The technique has also been generalized to fitting planes in 3-D images. Some practical issues of the proposed technique are given
