We propose an end-to-end dehazing model based on deep learning (CNN network) and uses the dehazing model re-proposed by AOD-Net based on the atmospheric scattering model for dehazing. Compare to the previously proposed dehazing network, the dehazing model proposed in this paper make use of the FPN network structure in the field of target detection, and uses five feature maps of different sizes to better obtain features of different proportions and different sub-regions. A large amount of experimental data proves that the dehazing model proposed in this paper is superior to previous dehazing technologies in terms of PSNR, SSIM, and subjective visual quality. In addition, it achieved a good performance in speed by using EfficientNet B0 as a feature extractor. We find that only using high-level semantic features can not effectively obtain all the information in the image. The FPN structure used in this paper can effectively integrate the high-level semantics and the low-level semantics, and can better take into account the global and local features. The five feature maps with different sizes are not simply weighted and fused. In order to keep all their information, we put them all together and get the final features through decode layers. At the same time, we have done a comparative experiment between ResNet with FPN and EfficientNet with BiFPN. It is proved that EfficientNet with BiFPN can obtain image features more efficiently. Therefore, EfficientNet with BiFPN is chosen as our network feature extraction.
