<p><b>Abstract</b>—A modified Hough transform based on a likelihood principle of connectivity and thickness is proposed for line detection. It makes short as well as thick line segments easier to detect in a noisy image. Certain desirable properties of the new method are justified by theory and simulations.</p>
