27 April 2018 Enabling self-configuration of fusion networks via scalable opportunistic sensor calibration
Author Affiliations +
The range of applications in which sensor networks can be deployed depends heavily on the ease with which sensor locations/orientations can be registered and the accuracy of this process. We present a scalable strategy for algorithmic network calibration using sensor measurements from non-cooperative objects. Specifically, we use recently developed separable likelihoods in order to scale with the number of sensors whilst capturing the overall uncertainties. We demonstrate the efficacy of our self-configuration solution using a real network of radar and lidar sensors for perimeter protection and compare the accuracy achieved to manual calibration.
