you can try new (and experimental) modules from grass7 addons - i.edge
and r.houghtransform. i.edge is for detecting edges using canny edge
detection algorithm [1] and r.houghtransform uses hough transformation
[2] to detect straight lines (maybe good for roads but not usable for
r.houghtransform can take the output of i.edge as an input.
Unfortunately there is no information in the man page yet but you can
always ask.
