Outdoor vision sensing systems often struggle with poor weather conditions, such as snow and rain, which poses a great challenge to existing video desnowing and deraining methods. In this paper, we propose a novel video desnowing and deraining model that utilizes the salience information of moving objects to address this problem. First, we remove the snow and rain from the video by low-rank tensor decomposition, which makes full use of the spatial location information and the correlation between the three channels of the color video. Second, because existing algorithms often regard sparse snowflakes and rain streaks as moving objects, this paper injects salience information into moving object detection, which reduces the false alarms and missed alarms of moving objects. At the same time, feature point matching is used to mine the redundant information of moving objects in continuous frames, and a dual adaptive minimum filtering algorithm in the spatiotemporal domain is proposed by us to remove snow and rain in front of moving objects. Both qualitative and quantitative experimental results show that the proposed algorithm is more competitive than other state-of-the-art snow and rain removal methods.
