Department Seminar: Data Fusion, an AI approach for data processing, Principles and Applications
Multi-sensor array usually referred to as sensor/data fusion is one of absorbing topic in Artificial Intelligence studies. The advantages of multiple-sensor data fusion approaches in terms of cost, accuracy and reliability will be explained in this talk. Generally, “Data Fusion” deals with the synergistic combination of data provided by various knowledge sources such as sensors or information extractor, in order to provide a better understanding of a given scene or environment. The use of sensor/data fusion concept has advantages such as “Redundancy”, “Complementary”, “Timeliness” and “Less Costly Information”. Fusion characterization addressing the application domain, fusion objective, fusion process input-output (I/O) characteristics and sensor suite configuration will be shown. In this seminar the different models and levels of Data Fusion will be presented. Finally, some typical examples on applications of sensor/data
