This book covers sensors and multiple sensor systems, including sensor networks and multi-sensor data fusion. It presents the physics and principles of operation and discusses sensor selection, ratings and performance specifications, necessary hardware and software for integration into an engineering system and signal processing and data analysis. Additionally, it discusses parameter estimation, decision making and practical applications. Even though the book has all the features of a course textbook, it also contains a wealth of practical information on the subject.
