In this paper, we present an extremely computation-efficient model called FAOD-Net for dehazing single image. FAOD-Net is based on a streamlined architecture that uses depthwise separable convolutions to build lightweight deep neural networks. Moreover, the pyramid pooling module is added in FAOD-Net to aggregate the context information of different regions of the image, thereby improving the ability of the network model to obtain the global information of the foggy image. To get the best

We use full-reference and no-reference image quality evaluation indicators to measure the effect of dehazing. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm has satisfactory results in terms of defogging quality and speed.
