Although deep convolutional neural networks (DCNN) show significant improvement for single depth map (SD) super-resolution (SR) over the traditional counterparts, most SDSR DCNNs do not reuse the hierarchical features for depth map SR resulting in blurred high-resolution (HR) depth maps. They always stack convolutional layers to make network deeper and wider. In addition, most SDSR networks generate HR depth maps at a single level, which is not suitable for large up-sampling factors. To solve these problems, we present pyramid-structured depth map super-resolution based on deep dense-residual network. Specially, our networks are made up of dense residual blocks that use densely connected layers and residual learning to model the mapping between high-frequency residuals and low-resolution (LR) depth map. Furthermore, based on the pyramid structure, our network can progressively generate depth maps of various levels by taking advantages of features from different levels. The proposed network adopts a deep supervision scheme to reduce the difficulty of model training and further improve the performance. The proposed method is evaluated on Middlebury datasets which shows improved performance compared with 6 state-of-the-art methods.
