The movement of atmospheric particles, which decreases contrast, changes color as well as atmospheric particles difficult to identify by human vision as well as some outdoor computer vision devices, will be used in images captured in hazy or foggy weather conditions. Image dehazing is thus an important issue and has been widely explored in computer vision. The task of image dehazing is to remove weather factors' impact to enhance the image's visual effects and to gain post-processing. We were using a pre-method of dark channels to dehaze images and NPEA to increase the image's naturalness or edge detection to detect edges.
