abstract

  • In this paper we present a method for evaluating sensor fusion algorithms based on a quantitative comparison, which is independent of the data acquired and the sensors used. The sensor fusion performance measures and performance analysis procedure provide a basis for modeling, analyzing, experimenting, and comparing different sensor fusion algorithms. The capability to compare different algorithms creates a ranking basis, making it possible to select the best algorithm. The statistical evaluation method defines the experimental design and statistical analysis. The numbers of experiments and repetitions required are derived from the statistical characteristics and the desired confidence level. Since procedures are defined to ensure that the experiments are indeed conducted differently, the results are not specific for either the evaluated test cases or the sensor …
