We use multi-frame super-resolution, specifically, Shift & Add, to increase the resolution of depth data. In order to be able to deploy such a framework in practice, without requiring a very high number of observed low resolution frames, we improve the initial estimation of the high resolution frame. To that end, we propose a new data model that leads to a median estimation from densely upsampled low resolution frames. We show that this new formulation solves the problem of undefined pixels and further allows to improve the performance of pyramidal motion estimation in the context of super-resolution without additional computational cost. As a consequence, it increases the motion diversity within a small number of observed frames, making the enhancement of depth data more practical. Quantitative experiments run on the Middlebury dataset show that our method outperforms state-of-the-art techniques in terms of accuracy and robustness to the number of frames and to the noise level.
