22 October 1993 Possibilistic versus probabilistic trade-off for data association
Author Affiliations +
This paper discusses probabilistic, possibilistic, and symbolic logic approaches to data association as part of the multi-sensor integration (MSI) problem. Alternative probabilistic scoring equations are given with specific trades between max a posterori and chi-square scoring. Dempster-Shafer and fuzzy set approaches to treat data with high uncertainty-in-the- uncertainty are compared. The role of symbolic rule-oriented approaches especially as part of a fusion analyst workstation (FAWS) expert system is discussed. Lastly, an avionics MSI design trade example is presented.
