Geometry Enhanced Reference-Based Image Super-Resolution
With the prevalence of smartphones equipped with a multi-camera system comprising multiple cameras with different field-of-view (FoVs), images captured by two or three cameras now share a portion of the FoV that are compatible with reference-based super-resolution (RefSR). In this work, we propose a novel RefSR model that utilizes geometric matching methods to enhance its performance in two aspects. First, we integrate geometric matching maps to improve feature fusion. Second, we train the matching modules equipped in the RefSR models under the supervision of accurate geometric matching maps to increase their robustness. Our experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness and state-of-the-art performance of the proposed method.
