Analysis and dehazing of near-infrared images Yu, Jae Taeg; Ra, Sung Woong;
Color image dehazing techniques have been extensively studied, and especially the dark channel prior (DCP)-based method has been widely used. Near infrared (NIR) image based applications are also widespread; however, NIR image-specific dehazing techniques have not attracted great interest. In this paper, the characteristics of NIR images are analyzed and compared with the color images' characteristics. The conventional color image dehazing method is also applied to NIR images to understand its effectiveness on different frequency-band signals. Furthermore, we modify the DCP method considering the characteristics of NIR images and show that our proposed method results in improved dehazed NIR images.
