We present a new method for model based recognition of articulated objects in cluttered scenes. The objects consist of rigid parts connected by rotary or prismatic joints. Our method is based on an extension of the Generalized Hough Transform paradigm. It is applicable to various viewing transformations. Unlike previous methods no significant degradation is expected in performance for recognition of articulated objects compared with the recognition of rigid objects containing a similar amount of information.
