Conversion of rgb to labl for lightness and a and b for the color opponents greenred and blueyellow will do the work. Contrast enhancement limit, specified as a number in the range 0, 1. It differs from ordinary histogram equalization in the respect that the adaptive method computes several histograms, each corresponding to a distinct section of the image, and uses them to redistribute the lightness values of the image. The histogram of an image shows the frequency of pixels intensity values. It may be worth trying an implementation based on perreault, s. Looking for online definition of clahe or what clahe stands for. Public member functions inherited from cvalgorithm. So to solve this problem, adaptive histogram equalization is used.
