Paper Abstract

An approach for darksignal-correction is presented that uses a model of each pixel's darksignal, which depends on the sensor's settings (integration time and gain) and its temperature. It is shown how one can improve the outcome of such a darksignal-correction strategy by using the darksignal of some pixels in order to compute an estimate of the sensor's temperature. Experimental results indicate that the darksignals' dependency on temperature and gain is more complex than considered in up-to-date darksignal models. In this paper it is shown how one can cope with this complex behaviour when estimating the temperature out of the darksignal. Experimental results indicate, that our method yields better results than using temperature measurements of dedicated temperature sensors.
