A Novel Information Fusion Method Based on Preference Selection Index
The aim of this paper is to propose a new information fusion method for the problem of multi-sensor target recognition. Multi-sensor information fusion problem contains many characteristic indexes, and thus it can be regarded as a multi-attribute decision making problem. The new fusion method is put forward based on preference selection index method. The new information fusion method is not necessary to assign relative importance between attributes, but overall preference value of attributes are calculated using concept of statistics. Thus the new method can overcome the subjective randomness of subjectively weighting method. An applied example proves that the method is both effective and exercisable.
