Abstract. The technique for optical daytime visibility range estimation using digital television images is has been developed. Modelling results of the accuracy evaluation of proposed technique are presented. Calibration routine for system of visibility range estimation using digital television images is proposed.

Key words: visibility range, digital image, digital television, total scattering coefficient.
