Abstract [en]

In recent years researchers has focused on the development of techniques for multi-sensor data fusion systems. Data fusion systems process data from multiple sensors to develop improved estimate of the position, velocity, attributes and identity of entities such as the targets or entities of interest. Visualizing sensor data from fused data to raw data from each sensor help analysts to interpret the data and assess sensor data fusion platform, an evolving situation or threats. Immersive visualization has emerged as an ideal solution for exploration of sensor data and provides opportunities for improvement in multi sensor data fusion. The thesis aims to investigate possibilities of applying information visualization to sensor data fusion platform in Volvo. A visualization prototype is also developed to enables multiple users to interactively visualize Sensor Data Fusion platform in real-time, mainly in order to demonstrates, evaluate and analyze the platform functionality. In this industrial study two research methodologies were used; a case study and an experiment for evaluating the results. First a case study was conducted in order to find the best visualization technique for visualizing sensor data fusion platform. Second an experiment was conducted to evaluate the usability of the prototype that has been developed and make sure the user requirement were met. The visualization tool enabled us to study the effectiveness and efficiency of the visualization techniques used. The results confirm that the visualization method used is effective, efficient for visualizing sensor data fusion platform.
