Project Summary:

Throughout the project work to create the SAMEER-TU Database, Infrared image processing laboratory has been setup for Thermography applications in the field of Security system and Navigation. The project team has carried out a rigorous survey of restoring the visual and infrared degraded images in poor visibility condition followed by different fusion techniques.

Outcomes of the Project:

[1] Dataset Design: The research team designed a database named Society of Applied Microwave Electronics & Engineering Research-Tripura University (SAMEER-TU) Database, which consists of visual & its corresponding thermal images of human faces, natural scene images, vehicles & also videos of vehicles in low visibility/illumination conditions. The database consists of around 5640 natural scenes images in different weather and illumination conditions, out of which 1020 images are captured in foggy condition, 250 images in poor illumination condition and 4370 images in normal condition. The images in outdoor environment are mainly influenced by two factors-Weather effect and Illumination effect.

Sample Images of SAMEER-TU Dataset

Natural Scene Images and Their Corresponding Thermal Images from SAMEER-TU Database

[2] Developed Technic: The research team also implemented a technique for enhancing the quality of degraded visual image/frames in poor visibility condition. Ome output of the developed method are given below.
