In this paper we present a novel algorithm for improving the visibility of surveillance videos degraded by fog and/or rain. The proposed algorithm adaptively enhances the global and local contrast of a surveillance video. The algorithm is inspired on the human visual system, and accounts for the perceptual sensitivity to noise, compression artifacts, and the texture of image content. The model is combined with the classic Contrast Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization (CLAHE) method to… CONTINUE READING
