dvanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) based on video camera tends to be generalized in today's automotive. However, if most of these systems perform nicely in good weather conditions, they perform very poorly under adverse weather particularly under rain. We present a novel approach that aims at detecting raindrops on a car windshield using only images from an in-vehicle camera. Based on the photometric properties of raindrops, the algorithm relies on image processing technics to highlight raindrops. Its results can be further used for image restoration and vision enhancement and hence it is a valuable tool for ADAS.
