Rain produces sharp intensity variation in images and videos, which degrade the performance of outdoor vision systems. These intensity variation depend on various factors, such as the camera parameters, the properties of rain, and the brightness of the scene. Removal of rain streaks in video is a challenging problem due to the random spatial distribution and fast motion of rain. There are several rain removal algorithms, where photometric, chromatic, and probabilistic properties of the rain have been used to detect and remove the rainy effect. Rain removal has found various applications in the field of security surveillance, vision based navigation, video/movie editing and video indexing/retrieval. This paper provides various techniques or methods that are used to detect and remove the rainy effect.
