This paper focuses on the solution of the problem of (onboard moving vehicles) multiple sensor data fusion systems. The proposed application uses distributed architectures that operate with sensors or sensor systems and give redundant or complementary information for moving objects. This architecture ensures a modular approach allowing exchangeability and benchmarking using the output of individual trackers, whereas the fusion algorithm gives a solution to the track management problem and the coverage of wide perception areas. The test case is a multi-sensor configuration, which monitors the rear and lateral areas of traffic. Results from simulations and real data show that the given approach allows maintenance of the ID of objects and recognition of the vehicle environment with acceptable rates of false alarm and misses.
