1989 Sensor Fusion: Spatial Reasoning and Scene Interpretation  
In this paper we describe an approach to high-level multisensor integration in the context of an autonomous mobile robot. Previous papers have described the development of the INRIA mobile robot subsystems: 1. sensor and actuator systems 2. distance and range analysis 3. feature extraction and segmentation 4. motion detection 5. uncertainty management, and 6. 3-D environment descriptions. We describe here an approach to: • the semantic analysis of the 3-D environment descriptions. This analysis
