OpenCV #010 Circle Detection Using Hough Transform

Highlights: In this post we will learn about analysing a given image to find circles detected in that image. Tutorial Overview: Intro Detecting Circles with Hough Hough Transform for Circles Code 1. Intro In the previous post, we saw how we can detect and find lines on images using Hough Transform. Now let’s move to something just a little bit more complicated, circles. Let’s start with the equation of a circle: $$ ( x_{i}-a )^{2}+(…
