A general framework on Multi-sensor Data Fusion
The Internet world has been expanding day by day. With the rapid development of technology, the needs and demands of the communities around the world are constantly changing. The vast majority of new solutions developed in this context are created using intelligent systems. Smart homes, intelligent cities, intelligent vehicles, smart grid systems, robotics, and many other IoT systems are some examples of these. All of these systems can perform their jobs using sensors in different structures. However, the challenge is combining the data received from the sensors in different structures in the same system into the desired format in a single structure. In this process, many different factors and parameters in the systems play a major role. Data fusion has been a big trend in the field of signal/image/data analysis. Furthermore, sensor technologies have been growing constantly due to recent advancements in communication, network devices and embedded systems. The concept of the Internet of Things (IoT) has been transforming to the Internet of Everything (IoE) rapidly. The number of objects connected to IoT is expected to reach 50 billion by 2020 due to the massive influx of diverse objects emerging day by day. Meanwhile, with this revolutionary transformation, researchers, implementers, deployers, engineers and users are faced with many challenges. In this complex IoE fields which complicate, massive and crowded; it has various types of devices, protocols, communication channels, architectures, middleware, link layer technologies, services and more. Moreover, it is extremely crucial gathering meaningful data from these complex systems architecture which has multi-sensor and heterogeneity structure. Therefore, multi-sensor data fusion is one of the hottest topics for research in IoT and IoE systems recently.
