Abstract

SKIDS stands for Signal and Knowledge Integration with Decisional Control for multiSensory systems. The project aims at defining a generic architecture for multisensor perception. General concepts have been defined and the implementation of a demonstration has started.

Basic problems of multisensor fusion have been met: they are described in this paper. The demonstration is described along with the approaches to face the general problems of:

-control of attention, resource allocation, data consistency maintenance, uncertainty management.
