Aiming to the handling issue of the multi-source information of joint training, a multi-sensor data fusion algorithm applicable for monitoring joint training is designed. On the basis of Kalman filter, this paper proposed an improved filtering algorithm which takes the quality of measurement data into consideration, a framework of data fusion system is provided based on the needs of algorithm, and this paper also improves the strategy of getting the weights for data fusion. The result of simulation shows that more accurate data can be achieved than any other single sensor measurements after fusing the multi-sensor data through this method.
