In industrial, the modern intelligent degree of board counting is relatively low. Some small manufacturers still count by hand, but for large factories, manual counting needs a lot of human resources, and the accuracy of counting is low. With the rapid development of modern intelligence, image recognition is becoming more mature, some traditional algorithms keep emerging, such as Hough Transform, Fast Line Detector (FLD), Line Segment Detector (LSD) and other line detection algorithms, they have their own advantages and disadvantages, and are summarized and tested, compare which algorithm has higher accuracy and better effect in the field of board linear detection and counting. Finally, the operation mechanism, advantages and disadvantages are summarized, and the process and trend of the further optimization and development of the traditional algorithm line detection technology in the future are prospected, which provides some reference for the research in related fields.
