A simple sensor fusion algorithm

Let’s assume, you have a set of sensors measuring the same property. By using competitive sensor fusion (see previous post for an explanation) you expect to increase the accuracy and reliablilty of the result. In the paper [1] you can … Continue reading

The different types of sensor fusion: complementary, competitive, and cooperative

Sensor Fusion is the combining of sensory data or data derived from sensory data such that the resulting information is in some sense better than would be possible when these sources were used individually. (W.¬†Elmenreich. Sensor Fusion in Time-Triggered Systems, … Continue reading
