Paper Abstract

The aim of this paper is to explore the problem of fusing identity and attribute information emanating from different sources, and to offer the decision maker a quantitative analysis based on statistical methodology that can enhance his/her decision making process regarding the identity of detected objects. Two identity information fusion architectures are discussed here. The first is concerned with the fusion of identity declarations where the sources are expected to provide only useful and complete results such as an identity declaration. The second is concerned with the fusion of attribute information using a modified version of the Dempster-Shafer evidential combination algorithm.
