Arbeitsgruppe: Data Fusion

Data Fusion

Welcome to the Research Group for Data Fusion!

The group is concerned with stochastic methods for (sensor) data and information fusion including related problems in nonlinear estimation and data analytics. A special focus of the group are tracking problems, i.e., the successive localization of one or more mobile objects.
