In self-supervised monocular depth estimation, the depth discontinuity and motion objects' artifacts are still challenging problems. Existing self-supervised methods usually utilize a single view to train the depth estimation network. Compared with static views, abundant dynamic properties between video frames are beneficial to refined depth estimation, especially for dynamic objects. In this work, we propose a novel self-supervised joint learning framework for depth estimation using consecutive frames from monocular and stereo videos. The main idea is using an implicit depth cue extractor which leverages dynamic and static cues to generate useful depth proposals. These cues can predict distinguishable motion contours and geometric scene structures. Furthermore, a new high-dimensional attention module is introduced to extract clear global transformation, which effectively suppresses uncertainty of local descriptors in high-dimensional space, resulting in a more reliable optimization in learning framework. Experiments demonstrate that the proposed framework outperforms the state-of-the-art(SOTA) on KITTI and Make3D datasets.
