Lecture: Advanced Sensor Data Fusion in Distributed Systems

This lecture series is a follow-on of the lectures on "Introduction to Sensor Data Fusion - Methods and Applications" given in the winter semester by Dr. W. Koch. Based on the methods discussed and analyzed there, we proceed to methodological refinements and more advanced applications that directly lead us to the cutting edge of current research and innovative applications of Sensor Data Fusion. After a brief recapitulation of what we have learned so far, we will look into more sophisticated sensor data fusion approaches, such as particle filtering, multi sensor fusion, and distributed estimation. We will understand power of these methods in their application to fusion problems taken from in recent research projects at Fraunhofer FKIE.
