Title: System and method for generating super-resolution-enhanced mosaic images

Abstract: A super-resolution-enhanced mosaic image generating system is provided for generating a super-resolution-enhanced mosaic image from a plurality of image frames, each image frame being associated with image data representative of an image of a portion of a scene. The mosaic image generating system comprises a mosaic image generator and a super-resolution generator. The mosaic image generator uses the image data from the image frames to generate mosaic image data representing a mosaic image. The super-resolution generator uses the mosaic image data and the image data from the image frames to generate the super-resolution-enhanced mosaic image. In that process, the super-resolution generator divides the mosaic image into a plurality of patches, each patch associated with at least one image frame, and performs a super-resolution operation in connection with the patch and image frames associated therewith to generate the super-resolution-enhanced mosaic image.
