Due to the non-uniform illumination conditions, images captured by sensors often suffer from uneven brightness, low contrast and noise. In order to improve the quality of the image, in this paper, a multi-path interaction network is proposed to enhance the R, G, B channels, and then the three channels are combined into the color image and further adjusted in detail. In the multi-path interaction network, the feature maps in several encoding–decoding subnetworks are used to exchange information

Meanwhile, in order to avoid the possible unnatural results caused by the separation of the R, G, B channels, the output of the multi-path interaction network is corrected in detail to obtain the final enhancement results. Experimental results show that the proposed method can effectively improve the visual quality of low-light images, and the performance is better than the state-of-the-art methods.
