Convex Linear Estimation Fusion

Modern estimation/tracking systems often involve multiple homogeneous or heterogeneous sensors that are spatially distributed to provide a large coverage, diverse viewing angles, or complementary information. The so-called distributed or decentralized approach has two major components (or steps): sensor level estimation and estimation fusion. Like most other work on distributed estimation, this chapter deals only with the second component: optimal distributed estimation fusion. In this setting, the local ...
