Intelligent Monitoring and Fusion
Pages 10

Data fusion has an extensive range of applications in aeronautics, space systems, and robotics. It also has applications in monitoring the health or condition of systems [10], where fusion can be used to improve the observations made about a system or environment for event detection. This section considers various aspects that contribute to the development of intelligent monitoring and fusion systems-systems capable of making decisions about the existence of precursors to events through the acquisition and combination of data about an environment or system.
