Data Fusion for Situation Monitoring Incident Detection Alert and Response Management Book Review:

Data Fusion is a very broad interdisciplinary technology domain. It provides techniques and methods for; integrating information from multiple sources and using the complementarities of these detections to derive maximum information about the phenomenon being observed; analyzing and deriving the meaning of these observations and predicting possible consequences of the observed state of the environment; selecting the best course of action; and controlling the actions. Here, the focus is on the more mature phase of data fusion, namely the detection and identification / classification of phenomena being observed and exploitation of the related methods for Security-Related Civil Science and Technology (SST) applications. It is necessary to; expand on the data fusion methodology pertinent to Situation Monitoring, Incident Detection, Alert and Response Management; discuss some related Cognitive Engineering and visualization issues; provide an insight into the architectures and methodologies for building a data fusion system; discuss fusion approaches to image exploitation with emphasis on security applications; discuss novel distributed tracking approaches as a necessary step of situation monitoring and incident detection; and provide examples of real situations, in which data fusion can enhance incident detection, prevention and response capability. In order to give a logical presentation of the data fusion material, first the general concepts are highlighted (Fusion Methodology, Human Computer Interactions and Systems and Architectures), closing with several applications (Data Fusion for Imagery, Tracking and Sensor Fusion and Applications and Opportunities for Fusion).

A Versatile and Efficient Data Fusion Methodology for Heterogeneous Airborne LiDAR and Optical Imagery Data Acquired Under Unconstrained Conditions Book Review:

La nécessité et l’importance de représenter une scène en 3-D ont été illustrées par de nombreuses applications en télédétection, telles que la planification urbaine, la gestion des catastrophes, etc. Dans ces applications, les données issues du LiDAR et de l’imagerie optique aérienne et satellitaire ont été largement utilisées. Il existe une complémentarité entre les données issues du LiDAR aéroporté et de l’imagerie optique aérienne/satellite, qui motive la fusion de ces données permettant de représenter des scènes observées en 3-D avec une meilleure précision et complétude. Ces dernières années, l’extraction automatique de l’empreinte des bâtiments dans les scènes urbaines et résidentielles est devenue un sujet d’intérêt croissant dans le domaine de la représentation et de la reconstruction de scènes en 3-D. Avec l’augmentation de la disponibilité d’une quantité massive de données capturées par différents capteurs LiDAR et d’imagerie installés sur des plateformes aériennes et spatiales, de nouvelles opportunités se présentent pour effectuer cette tâche à grande échelle. Cependant, les méthodes de fusion existantes considèrent généralement soit des systèmes d’acquisition hybrides composés de LiDAR et de caméras optiques fixés rigidement, soit des jeux de données acquis à partir de la même plateforme à des dates identiques ou très proches, et ayant la même résolution spatiale. Elles n’ont pas été conçues pour traiter des jeux de données acquis avec des plateformes différentes, dans différentes configurations, à des moments différents, ayant des résolutions spatiales et des niveaux de détail différents. Un tel contexte est appelé contexte d’acquisition non-contraint. D’autre part, l’extraction automatique de l’empreinte des bâtiments à grande échelle est une tâche complexe. Des méthodes existantes ont obtenu des résultats relativement significatifs mais en définissant des formes a priori pour les bâtiments, en imposant des contraintes géométriques, ou en se limitant à des zones spécifiques. De telles hypothèses ne sont plus envisageables pour des jeux de données à grande échelle. Ce travail de recherche est consacré au développement d’une méthode versatile de recalage grossier puis fin de jeux de données collectés selon un contexte d’acquisition non-contraint. Il vise à surmonter les défis associés à ce contexte tels que le décalage spatial entre les jeux de données, la différence de résolution spatiale et de niveau de détail, etc. De plus, ce travail de recherche propose une méthode d’extraction efficace des empreintes des bâtiments, offrant un niveau de précision élevé tout en étant une méthode non-supervisée dédiée aux applications à grande échelle. La méthode proposée, appelée “Super-Resolution-based Snake Model” (SRSM), consiste en une adaptation des modèles de snakes—une technique classique de segmentation d’images—pour exploiter des images d’élévation LiDAR à haute résolution générées par un processus de super-résolution. Il se rapporte au contexte d’acquisition de données non-contraint, servant d’exemple d’application de premier ordre. Des résultats pertinents ont été obtenus lors des évaluations rigoureuses des méthodes proposées, à savoir un niveau de précision hautement souhaitable par rapport aux méthodes existantes. Mots-clés : LiDAR aéroporté, imagerie optique satellitaire et aérienne, recalage de données, information mutuelle, super-résolution, scènes urbaines, extraction de bâtiments, grande échelle.

Applications of NDT Data Fusion Book Review:

Non-destructive testing (NDT) systems can generate incomplete, incorrect or conflicting information about a flaw or a defect. Therefore, the use of more than one NDT system is usually required for accurate defect detection and/or quantification. In addition to a reduction in inspection time, important cost savings could be achieved if a data fusion process is developed to combine signals from multisensor systems for manual and remotely operated inspections. This gathering of data from multiple sources and an efficient processing of information help in decision making, reduce signal uncertainty and increase the overall performance of a non-destructive examination. This book gathers, for the first time, essays from leading NDT experts involved in data fusion. It explores the concept of data fusion by providing a comprehensive review and analysis of the applications of NDT data fusion. This publication concentrates on NDT data fusion for industrial applications and highlights progress and applications in the field of data fusion in areas ranging from materials testing in the aerospace industry to medical applications. Each chapter contains a specific case study with a theoretical part but also presents experimental results from a practical point of view. The book should be considered more as a pragmatic introduction to the applications of NDT data fusion rather than a rigorous basis for theoretical studies.

Data Fusion Concepts and Ideas Book Review:

This textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to the concepts and idea of multisensor data fusion. It is an extensively revised second edition of the author's successful book: "Multi-Sensor Data Fusion: An Introduction" which was originally published by Springer-Verlag in 2007. The main changes in the new book are: New Material: Apart from one new chapter there are approximately 30 new sections, 50 new examples and 100 new references. At the same time, material which is out-of-date has been eliminated and the remaining text has been rewritten for added clarity. Altogether, the new book is nearly 70 pages longer than the original book. Matlab code: Where appropriate we have given details of Matlab code which may be downloaded from the worldwide web. In a few places, where such code is not readily available, we have included Matlab code in the body of the text. Layout. The layout and typography has been revised. Examples and Matlab code now appear on a gray background for easy identification and advancd material is marked with an asterisk. The book is intended to be self-contained. No previous knowledge of multi-sensor data fusion is assumed, although some familarity with the basic tools of linear algebra, calculus and simple probability is recommended. Although conceptually simple, the study of mult-sensor data fusion presents challenges that are unique within the education of the electrical engineer or computer scientist. To become competent in the field the student must become familiar with tools taken from a wide range of diverse subjects including: neural networks, signal processing, statistical estimation, tracking algorithms, computer vision and control theory. All too often, the student views multi-sensor data fusion as a miscellaneous assortment of different processes which bear no relationship to each other. In contrast, in this book the processes are unified by using a common statistical framework. As a consequence, the underlying pattern of relationships that exists between the different methodologies is made evident. The book is illustrated with many real-life examples taken from a diverse range of applications and contains an extensive list of modern references.

Multisensor Attitude Estimation Book Review:

There has been an increasing interest in multi-disciplinary research on multisensor attitude estimation technology driven by its versatility and diverse areas of application, such as sensor networks, robotics, navigation, video, biomedicine, etc. Attitude estimation consists of the determination of rigid bodies’ orientation in 3D space. This research area is a multilevel, multifaceted process handling the automatic association, correlation, estimation, and combination of data and information from several sources. Data fusion for attitude estimation is motivated by several issues and problems, such as data imperfection, data multi-modality, data dimensionality, processing framework, etc. While many of these problems have been identified and heavily investigated, no single data fusion algorithm is capable of addressing all the aforementioned challenges. The variety of methods in the literature focus on a subset of these issues to solve, which would be determined based on the application in hand. Historically, the problem of attitude estimation has been introduced by Grace Wahba in 1965 within the estimate of satellite attitude and aerospace applications. This book intends to provide the reader with both a generic and comprehensive view of contemporary data fusion methodologies for attitude estimation, as well as the most recent researches and novel advances on multisensor attitude estimation task. It explores the design of algorithms and architectures, benefits, and challenging aspects, as well as a broad array of disciplines, including: navigation, robotics, biomedicine, motion analysis, etc. A number of issues that make data fusion for attitude estimation a challenging task, and which will be discussed through the different chapters of the book, are related to: 1) The nature of sensors and information sources (accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, GPS, inclinometer, etc.); 2) The computational ability at the sensors; 3) The theoretical developments and convergence proofs; 4) The system architecture, computational resources, fusion level.

Distributed Detection and Data Fusion Book Review:

This book provides an introductory treatment of the fundamentals of decision-making in a distributed framework. Classical detection theory assumes that complete observations are available at a central processor for decision-making. More recently, many applications have been identified in which observations are processed in a distributed manner and decisions are made at the distributed processors, or processed data (compressed observations) are conveyed to a fusion center that makes the global decision. Conventional detection theory has been extended so that it can deal with such distributed detection problems. A unified treatment of recent advances in this new branch of statistical decision theory is presented. Distributed detection under different formulations and for a variety of detection network topologies is discussed. This material is not available in any other book and has appeared relatively recently in technical journals. The level of presentation is such that the hook can be used as a graduate-level textbook. Numerous examples are presented throughout the book. It is assumed that the reader has been exposed to detection theory. The book will also serve as a useful reference for practicing engineers and researchers. I have actively pursued research on distributed detection and data fusion over the last decade, which ultimately interested me in writing this book. Many individuals have played a key role in the completion of this book.
