Removing Reflection from In-vehicle Camera Image

Keisuke Inoue, Fumihiko Sakaue, Jun Sato


When taking images with an in-vehicle camera, objects in the vehicle are often reflected on the windshield due to sunlight, and they appear in the camera image. Since these reflections cause malfunction of autonomous driving systems, it is very important to remove the reflections from in-vehicle camera images. Thus, we in this paper propose a method for separating reflections and background scenes, and for generating images without reflections. Unlike the existing reflection removal methods, our method conducts the signal separation and the motion field computation simultaneously, so that we can separate images without using edge information. The efficiency of the proposed method is demonstrated by comparing with existing state-of-the-art methods.
