Fusion of Dehazing and Retinex using Transmission for Visibility Enhancement

Jaepil Ko

Abstract

Outdoor images are easily degraded by aerosols such as haze and fog. The existing dehazing methods based on the atmospheric scattering model improve image contrast and color fidelity at the cost of its brightness. We propose a visibility enhancement method by combining dehazing and retinex with the transmission. The proposed method retains both color fidelity and brightness without over saturation.
