ACF Active Connections Fusion (International Patent)
Multi-sensor fusion refers to the direct combination of several signals in order to provide a signal that has the same general format as the source signals.
Consequently, image fusion generates a fused image in which each pixel is determined from a function of pixels of the source images.
We present a new image fusion algorithm named Net Wave, who belong to the family of Active Connection Fusion (ACF) systems, and we compare it with the best algorithms used in literature.
