This textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to the theories and techniques of multi-sensor data fusion. It is aimed at advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students in electrical engineering and computer science, as well as researchers and professional engineers. The book is intended to be self-contained. No previous knowledge of multi-sensor data fusion is assumed, although some familiarity with the basic tools of linear algebra, calculus and simple probability theory is recommended. Although conceptually simple, the study of multi-sensor data fusion presents challenges that are unique within the education of the electrical engineer or computer scientist. To become competent in the field the student must become familiar with tools taken from a wide range of diverse subjects including: neural networks, signal processing, statistical estimation, tracking algorithms, computer vision and control theory. All too often the student views multi-sensor data fusion as a miscellaneous assortment of different processes which bear no relationship to each other. In this book the processes are described using a common statistical framework. As a consequence, the underlying pattern of relationships that exists between the different methodologies is made evident.3.3.1 Single Fusion Cell The simplest multi-sensor fusion network consists of a single fusion cell. This cell may be used to fuse together ... The alternative is to indirectly measure the tire pressure using existing sensors. Two such sensors are :anbsp;...
