The illumination enhancement is important for the computer vision applications using outdoor. Although many studies have been reported to solve this problem, they contain various problems. Therefore, we used a method combining variational retinex model and bright channel prior to suppress contrast over-emphasis and noise. We also reduced the computational cost by using FFT as a method to solve the quadratic optimization problem. Furthermore, in order to suppress blur artifacts, we used activation map changed to a form applicable to night images. In our experiments, we confirmed the effectiveness of our method, and improvement of detection accuracy by object detection algorithm.
