The enhancement of contrast in underexposed images is the first relevant step of information analysis in vision-based ADASs. In this paper, we propose a novel illuminance attenuation prior for contrast enhancement of a large and diverse number of underexposed images captured from different outdoor scenes under varying lighting conditions. We then generalized a linear model under this novel prior for the elicitation of an effective-illuminance proportion to enhance the underexposed images… CONTINUE READING
