We propose a new fast and reliable algorithm of parametric curves detection on images. In our approach as well as in many other approaches based on the Hough transform, we analyze the set of points obtained by an edge detector. Edge points are collected into chains of connected pixels, and then they are analyzed as a whole and piecemeal. At first we use randomized methods to reject unsuitable models. It gives us a high performance. Model parameters of fragments remained after randomized methods are estimated by the least squares method and the reliability of the hypothesis is estimated by the chi-square criterion. Then if the chi square criterion shows higher reliability for the merged similar models, we merge the obtained models.
