CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

. A method for generating a monochrome image from a color filter array, comprising:

receiving image data from an image capturing device having a color filter array over a sensor comprising a plurality of filter positions;

de-mosaicing the image data into three sets of data representing red, blue, and green (RGB) data, respectively, for each of the plurality of filter positions;

calculating a local gradient for each value of the RGB data;

calculating a weight for each value of the RGB data based on the local gradient calculated for each value of the RGB data; and

calculating a pixel value for each pixel position of the plurality of filter positions for the sensor for generating a monochrome image using the weight for each value of the RGB data.

2. The method of claim 1 , further comprising removing a black Ievel from the image data.

3. The method of claim 1 , further comprising calculating and applying a global gain to the image data for each of the plurality of filter positions.

4. The method of claim 3, wherein the global gain is calculated and applied to 99% of the image data.

5. The method of claim 1 , further comprising performing a median operation for each value of the RGB data to calculate a spatial noise reduction.

8. The method of claim 5, wherein the median operation comprises a 3x3 matrix performed over each value of the RGB data.

7. The method of claim 1 , further comprising outputting the monochrome image based on the pixel value for each pixel position.

8. The method of claim 1 , wherein the image capturing device is operated without an infrared filter and the image data further comprises data from an infrared spectrum.

9. The method of claim 1 , wherein calculating a local gradient comprises

subtracting a maximum and a minimum value from each of the three sets of RGB data for each of the plurality of filter positions.

10. The method of claim 1 , wherein the weight is calculated for each value of the RGB data by dividing the local gradient by a total gradient.

11.A method for generating a monochrome image from a color filter array, comprising:

receiving image data from an image capturing device having a color filter array over a sensor comprising a plurality of filter positions;

removing a black level from the image data;

calculating and applying a global gain to the image data for each of the plurality of filter positions;

de-mosaicing the image data into three sets of data representing red, blue, and green (RGB) data, respectively, for each of the plurality of filter positions;

performing a median operation for each value of the three sets of data representing the RGB data to calculate a spatial noise reduction;

calculating a local gradient based on the spatial noise reduction;

calculating a weight for each value of the RGB data based on the local gradient;

calculating a pixel value for each pixel position of the plurality of filter positions for the sensor using the weight for each value of the RGB data; and outputting a monochrome image based on the pixel value for each pixel position,

12. The method of claim 11 , wherein the global gain is calculated and applied to 99% of the image data.

13. The method of claim 11 , wherein the median operation comprises a 3x3 matrix performed over each value of the RGB data.

14. The method of claim 11 , further comprising:

bypassing a per color gain employed for white balancing.

15. The method of claim 11 , wherein the image capturing device is operated without an infrared cut filter and the generating the image data further comprises data from an infrared spectrum.

18. The method of claim 11 , wherein the local gradient is calculated by

subtracting a maximum and a minimum value from each of the three sets of data for each of the plurality of filter positions.

17. The method of claim 11 , wherein the weight is calculated for each value of the RGB data by dividing the local gradient by a total gradient.

8. A system for generating a monochrome image, comprising:

an image capturing device with a color filter array, over a sensor, comprising red, blue, and green components arrayed in a plurality of filter positions, the image capturing device operable to generate image data associated with each of the plurality of filter positions;

circuitry configured to:

receive the image date from the image capturing device;
