Versatile Image Enhancement
Recent development in visual SLAM includes a various application. However, we encounter images are degraded easily with noise from the haze, fog, and smoke.
1) Real-time channel invariant dehazing We provide an effective software module that is applicable for dehazing. Conventional approaches for dehazing usually exploit color information to estimated required parameters. Our solution is fully real-time (>10Hz) and works equally well for both color and grayscale images. Our method is applicable to various degradation, fog, smoke, and turbid underwater.
2) Exposure control for robust visual SLAM Vision based robotics often encounter either under or over exposed situation. Typical auto-exposure control scheme focuses on overall image quality for everyday life. Edges and detail enhancement is rather important for the robotics application.
