Abstract: In this paper, we present our learning experience on the design and implementation of image dehazing parallel code with OpenMP developed from existing fast sequential version. The aim of this work is to present an analysis of a case study showing the development of parallel haze removal with practical and efficient use of shared memory multi-core servers. Implementation technique and result discussions in terms of program improvements that may be needed to support parallel application developers with similar high performance goals are presented. Preliminary studies, results and experiments on haze removal application program are executed on multi-core shared memory platforms, and results show that the performance of the proposed parallel code is promising.

Keywords: OpenMP; image haze removal; multicores; parallel programming.
