A Region-Wised Medium Transmission Based Image Dehazing Method
Abstract– Image dehazing is a technique to enhance the images acquired in poor weather conditions, such as fog and haze. Existing image dehazing methods are mainly based on dark channel prior. Since the dark channel is not reasonable for sky regions, a sky segmentation and region wised medium transmission based image dehazing method . Firstly, sky regions are segmented by quad-tree splitting based feature pixels detection. Then, a medium transmission estimation method for sky regions is proposed based on color characteristic observation of sky regions. The medium transmission is then filtered by an edge preserving guided filter. Finally, based on the estimated medium transmission, the hazed images are restored. Experimental results demonstrate that the performance of the proposed method is better than that of existing methods. The restored image is more natural, especially in the sky regions.
