Abstract: A poor image puts a contrast constraint to the human eye visibility at night,which is one of the main reasons for increase in accidents at night.Digital Night Vision Enhancement is a processing technique to improve night vision by image processing. These techniques can enhance the images captured by ordinary cameras under low light conditions and can be implemented completely in software. This work deals with few basic techniques like histogramequalization,adaptive histogram equalization, contrast limited adaptive histogram equalization and their implementation using python. Also the related work in this field and proposed work using homomorphic filtering has been discussed in brief
