Paper Abstract

Shift-invariant motion blur can be modeled as a convolution of the true latent image and the blur kernel with additive noise. Blind motion de-blurring estimates a sharp image from a motion blurred image without the knowledge of the blur kernel. This paper proposes an improved edge-specific motion de-blurring algorithm which proved to be fit for processing remote sensing images. We find that an inaccurate blur kernel is the main factor to the low-quality restored images. To improve image quality, we do the following contributions. For the robust kernel estimation, first, we adapt the multi-scale scheme to make sure that the edge map could be constructed accurately; second, an effective salient edge selection method based on RTV (Relative Total Variation) is used to extract salient structure from texture; third, an alternative iterative method is introduced to perform kernel optimization, in this step, we adopt l1 and l0 norm as the priors to remove noise and ensure the continuity of blur kernel. For the final latent image reconstruction, an improved adaptive deconvolution algorithm based on TV-l2 model is used to recover the latent image; we control the regularization weight adaptively in different region according to the image local characteristics in order to preserve tiny details and eliminate noise and ringing artifacts. Some synthetic remote sensing images are used to test the proposed algorithm, and results demonstrate that the proposed algorithm obtains accurate blur kernel and achieves better de-blurring results.
