Paper Abstract

Imaging quality is often significantly degraded under hazy weather condition. The purpose of this paper is to recover the latent sharp image from its hazy version. It is well known that the accurate estimation of depth information could assist in improving dehazing performance. In this paper, a detail-preserving variational model was proposed to simultaneously estimate haze-free image and depth map. In particular, the total variation (TV) and total generalized variation (TGV) regularizers were introduced to restrain haze-free image and depth map, respectively. The resulting nonsmooth optimization problem was efficiently solved using the alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM). Comprehensive experiments have been conducted on realistic datasets to compare our proposed method with several state-of-the-art dehazing methods. Results have illustrated the superior performance of the proposed method in terms of visual quality evaluation.
