|Goals:||Information Fusion identifies the concept of combining data from different information sources, such as sensors or human experts. The conceptual strategy is based on obtaining new or more certain information by data combination. In numerous applications it is not possible to capture all necessary information or features by a single sensor source. In such cases more sensors and additive expert's know-how can generate more precise data regarding different real world systems, e.g. robots, machines and equipment, data experts systems, cognitive systems and so on.|
