Modeling Edges at Subpixel Accuracy Using the Local Energy Approach
April 1994 (vol. 16 no. 4)
pp. 405-410

In this paper we describe a new technique for ID and 2D edge feature extraction to subpixel accuracy using edge models and the local energy approach. A candidate edge is modeled as one of a number of parametric edge models, and the fit is refined by a least-squared error fitting technique.
