Sensor Fusion for Intrusion Detection With Sensor Networks

Open access


A sensor fusion algorithm is proposed, which can be used to fuse measurements from a distributed sensor network, containing inexpensive, easily deployable and energy efficient magnetic sensor devices. The sensor measurements are collected and transferred to a central base station, where the sensor fusion is performed, using the sensor location. The algorithm provides location, direction, and speed information about the detected vehicles. The paper describes the sensor technology and the fusion method, and the performance of the system is illustrated by real test measurements.
