Paper Abstract

A raster-scan algorithm and the corresponding hardware implementation for the approximation of binary pattern edges with line segments is described. The generated representation is more suitable for processing by conventional microprocessors than raw binary images or chain-code descriptions. The approach is used in an experimental printed wiring board inspection system.
