Exact predictions of the performances of the Hough detection of straight lines in two-dimensional images are presented for rectangular and circular retinas, in Cartesian and normal parameterization, in the case of noisy signals. Detection of circles, under the same assumptions, is discussed. The limits of adaptive quantization to reduce intrinsic noise are presented, and it is shown that a signal processing approach is especially convenient to measure the performances of a detector based on the Hough transform.
