The rapid growth in computer vision applications that are affected by environmental conditions challenge the limitations of existing techniques. This is driving the development of new deep learning based vision techniques that are robust to environmental noise and interference. We propose a novel deep CNN model, which is trained from unmatched images for the purpose of image dehazing. This solution is enabled by the concept of the Siamese network architecture. Using object performance measures of image PSNR and SSIM we are able to demonstrate a quantitative and qualitative improvement in the network dehazing performance. This superior performance is achieved with significantly smaller training datasets than existing methods.
