Situational assessment of multisensor fusion data

Eduardo Estrada, University of Texas at El Paso


The importance of sensors has grown dramatically through the years, specially since they have the capability to create a specific task. Multiple sensor fusion is an area that has rapidly grown due to its multiple and beneficial applications. It is common to develop devices that have multiple sensors; however, the fusion of these multiple sensors to make a single output is remarkable. In fact, this is the way people chose to try to model the human body which has innumerable sensors and makes one decision. The development of sensor fusion not only helps create innovations in technology, but has the potential in diagnosing several medical conditions. Some of these medical conditions such as Parkinson's disease and strokes may affect the way a person walks. Here, we will develop a multiple sensor device that records the ground reaction force in the foot and the way a person walks and can detect anomalies.
