Paper Abstract

This study suggests a slight variation of the Dempster- Shafer theory using observation qualification in multi- sensor contexts. The uncertainty is placed on the rules instead of on sources. Thus, sensor's specialization is taken into account. By this approach, the masses are not directly attributed on the frame of discernment elements, but on the rules themselves that become the sources of knowledge, in the context of Dempster combining rule. It proposes then an approach for observation qualification in a multi-sensor context, as well as it suggests a new path for the delicate task of mass attribution.
