Paper Title:
A Fog-Removing Treatment Based on Combining High-Frequency Emphasis Filtering and Histogram Equalization
  Abstract

Fog may cause the impairment of image as well as the decrease in the distinguish ability. The present paper is to get rid of the weather’s influence from the impaired image. According to Retinex theory and exponential relationship between the degradation of the image and the depths of the scene points, it puts forward a fog-removing treatment based on combining high-frequency emphasis filtering and histogram equalization .Firstly, obtain the padding parameters and fill it. Secondly, filter the impaired image using Butterworth highpass filter of order 2. Through the padding parameters, Highpass filtering is not overly sensitive to the value of cutoff frequencies, as long as the radius of the filter is not so small that frequencies near the origin of the transform are passed. In which the gray-level tonality due to the low-frequency components was retained. Lastly, histogram balanced the image gotten last step. The simulation result based on Matlab shows his algorithm can effectively improve the visual effect scene under the condition of mist.
