Multi-Sensor Super Resolution

Image sensing is usually done with multiple sensors, like the RGB sensors in color imaging and the IR and EO sensors in surveillance. A method to increase the resolution of each sensor by considering the other sensors is presented, based on the super-resolution approach originally used with images of the same sensor.  The multi-sensor extension is enabled by an assumption of local affine relations between the intensities of different sensors at corresponding image locations.

A benefit of Multi-sensor super-resolution is the ability to increase the resolution of even a single color image (e.g. increase the ``red" resolution based on the ``green" and ``blue" images).  Since the displacement between different color sensors is usually fixed in digital color cameras, and since the different sensors are capturing the images simultaneously, it allows the same computation for all pictures taken with this camera, even in dynamic scenes.
