Paper Abstract

We describe an approach which facilitates and makes explicit the organization of the knowledge necessary to map multisensor system requirements onto an appropriate assembly of algorithms, processors, sensors, and actuators. We have previously introduced the Multisensor Kernel System and Logical Sensor Specifications as a means for high-level specification of multisensor systems. The main goals of such a characterization are: to develop a coherent treatment of multisensor information, to allow system reconfiguration for both fault tolerance and dynamic response to environmental conditions, and to permit the explicit description of control. In this paper we show how Logical Sensors can be incorporated into an object-based approach to the organization of multisensor systems. In particular, we discuss: * a multisensor knowledge base, * a sensor specification scheme, and * a multisensor simulation environment.
