Abstract—Linear approximation of point spread function Two other well known and closely related registration PSF is a new method for determining subpixel translations methods, normalized cross-correlation [10] and phase- between images. The problem with the actual algorithm is the correlation [11] use some intenstiy of interpolation in inability of determining translations larger than 1 pixel.

In this frequency domain, in order to determine subpixel paper a multiresolution technique is proposed to deal with the problem. Its performance is evaluated by comparison with two translations. Although FFT can be used to obtain Fourier other well known registration method.

In the proposed technique coefficients, these techniques usually recalled with their the images are downsampled in order to have a wider view.

Other transforms, such as DCT [12] Progressively decreasing the downsampling rate up to the initial and Wavelets [14]have also been considered for the resolution and using linear approximation technique at each step, image registration. The use of mutual information [15] in the algorithm is able to determine translations of several pixels in images is another interesting approach to the subject. Zitova in [16] provided an historical up to the publication Keywords—Point Spread Function, Subpixel translation, date,of course review of the image registration Superresolution, Multiresolution approach.

Since the accuracy of the registration is very crucial in the superresolution applications, most practical implementations of registration algorithms involve either fundamental for superresolution applications. Kanade in [4] and recently by Lin and Shum in [5]. However, such stacks for the further work. Irani-Peleg in [1] presented a superresolution algorithm The outline of the remaining sections of this paper is as which uses a registration method based on the geometric follows.

In section II the imaging model and piecewise affine transformations. Another superresolution technique linear approximation of point spread function PSF are based on projections onto convex sets POCS presented in presented upon which, in section III, the multiresolution [3] also uses the same registration technique.


While method for the calculation of subpixel level translations is advanced versions have been proposed [9]the method proposed. This work was supported by other methods given in [1] and [11]. Commentary and the Scientific Research Commission of Osmangazi University under grant planned future work are in the last section. A pure restoration or superresolution application tries to undo the since IL1 and IL2 are the images which were already effects of one or more of these function blocks under some translated by W1 and W2 respectively.

In [12] W1 is set to assumptions. The model in [1] included shift invariant Gaussian blur, spatial which corresponds to zero translation, or reference, and 4 translation, rotation and AWGN. The phase correlation in is solved for W2 by defining a set of constraints for the [11] and piecewise linearization in [12] do not handle the weights from the layout depicted in Fig.

Therefore the model we used here, as a shortcoming in its present state, does not have xs rotation block either.

In addition, all imaging parameters, 1 2 3 except the translation, are expected to be time invariant and subipxel the operational limits of the imaging device i. Pixel value is produced using hypothetical pixels. Imaging model used in this work. The least squares solution system with equality constraints [18] Baker and Kanade in [4] split the Gaussian blur into two. The second part combines the where b I L 2W0and B registrationn d are the constraint matrices subpixel part of the spatial translation and the photon derived from the layout, is strictly stable because of the summation operation occurring in the cells of the CCD constraints unless all pixels of the images have the same camera and is referred to as PSFcamera.

Then, the objective puramid.

White squares numbered in the figure are the discrete beams. The larger square Since the piecewise linearization of PSF algorithm requires represents the pixel value generated with the weighted the translations to be within 1 pixel range, one has to sum of these hypothetical pixels values.

Weighted sums downsample images to oh larger translations to that given as range. It should Here, Wk is the translation weight matrix whose elements, be the smaller of N and M for a uniform downsampling w nare shown in Fig. The requirement for all different pixels when the downsampled kth image. An image translated by W1 can again be image size is as small as a couple pixels is necessitated by translated by W2 to have a combined translation suboixel W It the linear equation system.


In tp the largest translation that can be calculated is also limited by the pixel values, since downsampling with such a high rate reduces the differences between pixels, which actually are relied upon for the calculation.

In the intensityy, illustrated in Fig. The calculated translations converted to actual image pixel terms are used to crop the corresponding overlapping image areas and the cropped images are downsampled with lesser rate again.

The translations at each step are stored for the calculation of combined Figure 4. The approah D and r are selected according to the estimated translation range and image dynamics. Flow of multiresolution approach.

Random numbers representing 30 8. Parts of these images are 25 8. The downsampling 20 8. Some overlapping of the Gaussian blobs is allowed not to allow aliasing. Several subpixel translations and noise levels are used in the tests. Another developed in this work. The results of three techniques are approximation method was superior to others, as indicated then tabulated and compared. Sections of original noise free by the numbers in the tables.
