The main object of this work is the development of an intelligent multi-sensor integration and fusion model that uses fuzzy inference system. Sensor data from different types of sensors are integrated and fused together based on the confidence which is not typically used in traditional data fusion methods. The information is fed as input to a fuzzy inference system(FIS). The output of the FIS is weights that are assigned to the different sensor data reflecting the confidence En the sensor´s behavior and performance. We interpret a type of fuzzy inference system as an interpolator of B-spline hypersurfaces. B-spline basis functions of different orders are regarded as a class of membership functions. This paper presents a model that ...
