In Hough , Duda and Hart , and Griffith  procedures were proposed for detecting lines in pictures and in  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.
