  • Presentation Overview Conclusion Introduction Fog, light and vision Fog effects on road vision Modeling visual effects Algorithm overview Results

  • IntroductionMeasuring the atmospheric visibility: Constitutes a driving assistance. Estimates the operation range of onboard perception sensors.This work is part of the french ARCOS project.

  • Fog, light and vision Fog microstructureFog is a concentration of water droplets suspended in the air, bringing visibility below one kilometer. Light scatteringThe daylight is scattered by fog droplets in all directions. This effect is described by an extinction coefficient k. Visibility impairmentThe fog reduces distant contrasts. This effect is described by the meteorological visibility: the greatest distance at which a black object of suitable dimensions can be seen.

  • ConclusionThis original method has the following advantages: detects the presence of fog and measures the meteorological distance of visibility, indicates if it is temporary inoperative, is based on a physical model of fog, needs only the presence of the road and the sky in the image to work, is real time performed, works with a single camera.
