Image enhancement techniques are increasingly needed for improving object recognition in automobile driving. In driving conditions, there are many variables that degrade the quality of the image captured from the camera, such as fog, rain, a sudden change of illumination, or lack of illumination. If the quality of the obtained image is degraded, object recognition (cars, pedestrians, fixed objects, and traffic signals) can be unsatisfactory. To improve the recognition rate of objects, several image enhancement algorithms are proposed and evaluated. In this chapter, general image enhancement techniques are introduced, followed by a discussion of advanced techniques for the driving environment.
