This book illustrates the benefits of sensor fusion by considering the characteristics of infrared, microwave, and millimeter-wave sensors, including the influence of the atmosphere on their performance.
Applications that benefit from this technology include:
- vehicular traffic management
- remote sensing
- target classification and tracking
- weather forecasting
- military and homeland defense
Covering data fusion algorithms in detail, Klein includes a summary of the information required to implement each of the algorithms discussed, and outlines system application scenarios that may limit sensor size but that require high resolution data.
