Image contrast enhancement for outdoor machine vision applications

Abd Wahab, Mohd Helmy and Zakaria, Nasriah and Latip, Rohaya and Abdul Salam, Rosalina (2013) Image contrast enhancement for outdoor machine vision applications. In: IEEE International Conference of Soft Computing and Pattern Recognition 2013 (SoCPaR 2013) , 15-18 December 2013, Hanoi, Vietnam .



Outdoor machine vision is getting a concern nowadays. Ranging from surveillance and monitoring system to automotive system such as driver assistance system require vision application or artificial eye to keep monitoring the situations. However, most of these applications works very well during clear weather and degrade during bad weather due to the atmospheric particles mitigate the quality of vision system. This paper discuss the state of the art of image enhancement techniques used to adjust the contrast of an outdoor image degrade by fog, haze, and rain. A brief overview of bad weather will be discussed and several recent techniques on removing fog, haze and rain are discussed.
