Sensor Fusion



The fusion of sensors or data is today often used for increasing precision in navigation, position and location of mobile objects in the shipping industry, GPS systems, and smartphones. This is due in part that some information may not be reliable when using the sensor data sources individually. By fusing several independent sensors containing individual information, their combined data may represent precise and usable information or distributions.
