The paper presents a new method for image resolution enhancement from multiple image frames using an integrated recurrent neural network (IRNN). The IRNN is a set of feedforward neural networks working collectively with the ability of having feedback of information from its output to its input. As such, it is capable of both learning and searching the optimal solution in the solution space for optimisation problems. In other words, it combines the advantages of both the Hopfield network and the multilayered feedforward network in solving the enhanced image reconstruction problem. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed IRNN can successfully be used to enhance image resolution. The proposed neural network based method is promising for real-time applications, especially when the inherent parallelism of computation of the neural network is explored. Further, it can adapt itself to the various conditions of the reconstruction problem by learning.
