Advanced Vehicle Control Systems (AVCS) require a
large number of sensors for control at different levels.
Whereas all sensors contains uncertainty to some degree,
different sensors are particularly useful in different
situations. Therefore, sensor redundancy is essential to
achieve high sensor data fidelity. In this work, sensor
validation and fusion of a positioning sensor system
