# 0.1 2:hough transform

 Page 1 / 3

## 2.1 approach

We first detect edges using the Sobel operator [1], and then we apply the Hough circle transform to detect circles in the image [2.]The following steps we took will be covered in more detail under section 2.2.

1. Blurring image with the Gaussian kernel
2. Using the Sobel operator to find edge points
3. Applying Hough circle transform
4. Processing the results of the transform

Fig 2.1 From left to right: Original image, blurred image, image Edges, Hough transform results, processing the results of the Hough transform.

## 2.2 software implementation

Software implementation was done with Python. The following Python libraries were used.

• Numpy version 1.10.1
• Scipy version 0.16.0
• OpenCV version 3.0.0

## 2.2.1 blurring the image with the gaussian kernel

Blurring the image removes noise and filters out background details. To do this, we blur the image with a Gaussian kernel.

Fig 2.2 5x5 Gaussian kernel with a standard deviation of 1

``` Code def blur(img, blursize): """:param img: image to be blurred :param blursize: size of gaussian kernel to blur with:return: blurred image """# ============================= # Generate Gaussian kernel# ============================= gauss = cv2.getGaussianKernel(blursize, blursize/3)gauss = np.outer(gauss, gauss) # =============================# Filter with Gaussian kernel # =============================img = cv2.filter2D(img, -1, gauss) return img```

## 2.2.2 using the sobel operator to find edge points

Edges occur at large changes in pixel value, so by finding local maximums in the image gradient’s magnitude, we can detect edge points. This concept is illustrated in 1 dimension (1D) in Fig 2.3.

Fig 2.3 Edges occur at large changes in pixel value, or, local maximums in the derivative.

Convolving an image with the Sobel operator gives us the approximate partial derivatives in the x and y directions. Let us define The Sobel operator as Sx for the x direction and Sy for the y direction, let our define our image as A, and let us define Bx and By as the partial x and partial y, respectively, derivative approximations of A.

Fig 2.4 Sobel operators for approximating partial x and partial y derivatives

We can find the magnitude of gradient with equation 2.2, where the square and square root are element-wise operations.

Now let E be a boolean matrix of the same dimensions as the image where if a pixel is an edge, then the boolean value for the pixel is True. We calculate this matrix by determining a threshold tmag and declaring every pixel whose gradient magnitude is at least tmag an edge pixel

In our actual approach, we split the image into red, blue, and green channels. We perform edge detection on all 3 and recombine them with equation 2.4. This method allows us to find cleaner edges.

We can find the gradient of B with equation 2.5. Though it doesn’t factor into the method of edge detection used here, finding the gradient at edges is important for reducing computational complexity for the Hough transform.

The given of f(x=x-2. then what is the value of this f(3) 5f(x+1)
hmm well what is the answer
Abhi
how do they get the third part x = (32)5/4
can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
hmm
Abhi
is it a question of log
Abhi
🤔.

what is a good calculator for all algebra; would a Casio fx 260 work with all algebra equations? please name the cheapest, thanks.

kkk nice
algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
or infinite solutions?
Kim
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world

how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?

this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
