Real-Time Disparity Contrast Combination for Onboard Estimation of the Visibility Distance

In this paper, the authors present a method for estimating the mobilized visibility distance. This is considered to be greatest distance at which a distant object is visible on a road surface. The proposed method involves the computations of local contrasts higher than a given threshold and a depth map of the vehicle environment using stereovision. The method is shown to be operative day and night, under all meteorological conditions, and is stable in adverse weather conditions.
