Content-Adaptive Data Fusion

Paul Bao, Le Thanh Hai

Abstract

We propose a novel image fusion scheme based on independent component analysis in which image / information is fused aimed at information maximization. In the scheme, a novel algorithm is presented which, based on specific fusing images, determines adaptively a specific weight for linear fusion of images using ICA. The scheme is established on the ICA maximum information principles and offers an efficient and adaptive image fusion process with the robustness under various fusion situations.
