Abstract
Human eyes cannot notice low contrast objects in the image. Image contrast enhancement methods can make the unnoticed objects noticed, and human can detect and recognize the objects. In order to guide the design of enhancement methods, performance of enhancement methods for objects detection and recognition(ODR) should be valued. The existing performance evaluation methods evaluate image enhancement methods by calculating the increment of contrast or image information entropy. However, it is essentially an image information transmission process that human detect and recognize objects in the image, and image contrast enhancement can be viewed as a form of image coding. According to human visual properties, the transmission process of ODR information are modeled in this paper, and a performance evaluation method was proposed from the information theory of Shannon.
