Data Fusion Strategies in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

Data Fusion Strategies in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Data fusion plays a central role in more and more automotive applications, especially for driver assistance systems. On the one hand the process of data fusion combines data and information to estimate or predict states of observed objects. On the other hand data fusion introduces abstraction layers for data description and allows building more flexible and modular systems. The data fusion process can be divided into a low-level processing (tracking and object... [Lire la suite]
