Generic approach of the uncertainty management in multisensor fusion processes. (Approche générique de la gestion de l’incertain dans les processus de fusion multisenseur.) (French) Zbl 1103.68114
Summary: The uncertainty management in multisensor systems is considered in the federative framework of the theory of evidence. A basic operator, named extension, is elaborated. It provides a general formulation of the different operators that constitute a complete and coherent processing of multiple uncertain observations, from their modeling up to the required decision making. This formulation allows to reason with believes individually expressed on heterogeneous frames of discernment, without using a common one. The particular conditions that lead to the traditional operators are specified, and the implementation of the new generic operator is described. A few examples illustrate a suitable management of uncertainty processing.
