“Sensor Fusion Techniques for Accurate Perception of Objects in the Environment,” a Presentation from the Sanborn Map Company

Baharak Soltanian, Vice President of Research and Development for the Sanborn Map Company, presents the “Sensor Fusion Techniques for Accurate Perception of Objects in the Environment” tutorial at the May 2023 Embedded Vision Summit.

Increasingly, perceptual AI is being used to enable devices and systems to obtain accurate estimates of object locations, speeds and trajectories. In demanding applications, this is often best done using a heterogeneous combination of sensors (e.g., vision, radar, LiDAR). In this talk, Soltanian introduces techniques for combining data from multiple sensors to obtain accurate information about objects in the environment.

Soltanian briefly introduces the roles played by Kalman filters, particle filters, Bayesian networks and neural networks in this type of fusion. She then examines alternative fusion architectures, such as centralized and decentralized approaches, to better understand the trade-offs associated with different approaches to sensor fusion as used to enhance the ability of machines to understand their environment.
