Image dehazing is a useful technique which can eliminate the bad effect of haze on images and enhance the performances of image/video processing algorithms in the hazy weather. In this study, a single image dehazing method is proposed. The authors estimate the initial transmission properly based on latent region-segmentation and refine the estimated initial transmission by an objective function with a novel weighted L 1-norm regularisation term. The half-quadratic splitting minimisation method…
