Paper Abstract

A combination serial and parallel configuration of n sensors for decision fusion is analyzed. Unlike a parallel fusion scheme which fuses data only when it receives all information from all sensors, this configuration does not require data from all sensors before fusion. This configuration, therefore, is better than parallel fusion due to its speed and tendency to process data without time delay. Furthermore, it is better than serial distributed decision fusion in the sense that it removes the possibility of link failure.
