IIT Kharagpur has invented a technology called.’ Real-Time Fog and Rain Removal from Videos’. It helps to clear a hazy scene caused by rain, fog, or smog. It leads to delay and cancellation of flights and trains.
When scientists need to track the incident with cameras in-ground stations. Due to weather conditions, the video gets degraded.
The institute says the new technology will help a lot.
How it works in the rain and fog?
It is the fog algorithm that estimates the distance of objects from the camera in the form of a depth map. The depth map is purifying using anisotropic diffusion to smooth depth map and clearing the boundaries of the project. The image is regained to give clear images.
Who has developed the system?
The algorithm developed by Sudipta Mukhopadhyay, department of electronics and electrical communication at IIT Kharagpur
To implement this technology, the Railways and Defence Research and Development organization started talking to acquire the technology from IIT Kharagpur. The institute is also interested in deploying it in Railways
DRDO finds the value during rocket launches and missile test which is done by Integrated Test Range
