Title: On Effect of Information Loss on Fuser Quality and Utility

Abstract

We abstract the accuracy performance of any fuser into a fusion quality measure that is within the range [0; 1] and monotonically decreases with increasing errors. Although there are many possible ways to map the actual error to this quality measure, we adopt a mapping function consisting of both concave and convex regions and its parameters can be tuned based on system design requirements. The effect of communication loss over the links from the sensors, where estimates are generated, to the fuser is then considered, and based on the variations of the quality measure with loss, we define the overall fuser utility that characterizes the resilience of a fuser with increasingly adverse communication constraints. Tracking examples are shown to demonstrate the comparative quality and utility performances of several closed-form fusers.
