The project presents visibility restoration of single hazy images using color analysis and depth estimation with enhanced refined transmission technique. Visibility of outdoor images is often degraded by turbid mediums in poor weather, such as haze, fog, sandstorms, and smoke. Optically, poor visibility in digital images is due to the substantial presence of different atmospheric particles that absorb and scatter light between the digital camera and the captured object. The hazy removal technique divided into three categories such additional information approaches, multiple image approaches, single-image approaches. The first two methods are expense one and high computational complexity. Recently single image approach is used for this dehazing process because of its flexibility and low cost. The restoration model is proposed with utilization of median filter and adaptive gamma correction technique and dark channel prior method. This approach overcomes the problems such as color distortion, artifacts and insufficient depth information. The dark channel prior is to estimate scene depth in a single image and it is estimated through get at least one color channel with very low intensity value regard to the patches of an image. The transmission map will be estimated through atmospheric light estimation. The median filter and adaptive gamma correction are used for enhancing transmission to avoid halo effect problem. Then visibility restoration module utilizes average color difference values and enhanced transmission to restore an image with better quality. Finally the simulated result shows that obtained restored image has better contrast and hazy free scene objects under various weather conditions and the performance measures such as Gaussian distribution function and measure of enhancement are evaluated.
- Additional Information approaches
- Retinex theory and Gamma correction
- Local contrast adjustment technique
- Dark channel prior method
- Difficult to acquire scene depth information
- Low performance in restoration of image quality
- It degrades image quality after restoration due to blocking artifacts.
- It doesn’t provide optimal transmission which causes halo effect and color distortion problems.
