Length: 3 hours
Intended Audience: Post graduate / PhD students and system engineers in industry, scientific staff in research labs. Basic knowledge in mathematics and statistics is necessary.
Description: The tutorial covers partly material of the recently published book of the presenter (Tracking and Data Fusion, Springer 2014, Mathematical Engineering Series, ISBN 978-3-642-39270-2) and thus provides an guided introduction to deeper reading with a particular focus on passive surveillance. Starting point is the well known JDL model of sensor data and information fusion that provides general orientation within the world of fusion methodologies and its various applications, covering a dynamically evolving field of ever increasing relevance. Using the JDL model as a guiding principle, the tutorial introduces into advanced fusion technologies based on practical examples taken from real world applications.
