Sensor fusion experts meet in Brussels
Creation date: 23 March 2006
The Commission funded Fusion Forum organised their 1st workshop on 8 March 2006 at the Volvo premises in Brussels. More than 70 sensor fusion experts from 50 organisations gathered to discuss research and deployment issues in their field. The presentation made by the European Commission supported IP PReVENT ProFusion2 Consortium met with great interest among the participants.
The focus of the presentation was the Consortium’s progress in creating a framework for data fusion. Such a framework will allow safety applications to combine sensory data derived from various sources such as radars, cameras, etc. This will give the applications more reliable and accurate information to work with, resulting in better and more dependable systems. The goal is to obtain a wide view in space and time of the vehicle’s environment, using a limited number of low-cost sensors.
This met with approval among the audience, and there was broad agreement that sensor data fusion research should be combined with the development of sensors so as to support advanced active and preventive safety functions in the best way. A working group will be established to work on a “White paper” on sensor data fusion in parallel to the ProFusion2 activities.
Full house at Volvo’s premises in Brussels for the 1st Fusion Forum Workshop.
Through the Fusion Forum the PReVENT subproject ProFusion2 will ensure the exchange of expertise between various stakeholder groups, such as Original Equipment Manufacturers, suppliers and research communities. The Forum also complements the expertise of the PReVENT partners and brings them together with sensor data fusion experts.
