I am getting the pattern shown in the picture from an experiment. To my human brain it is evident that it consists of some 20 straight lines. I need to find position and slope of all these lines (perform a regression). But I need to do it completely automatically. If this were a a single sequence I would have used RLS(Recursive Least Squares) or Kalman filter. But how can I go about if I want to make 20 simultaneous regressions that do not conflict with each other?
What would be the most generic way to solve these kind of problems (say if I have an image of 20 overlapping boxes and need to find size, position and angle of all of them, at once)? I suppose the solution is more than well-known since this would be fundamental for any image recognition, but I cannot find a generic description of the method.
