Multisensor data fusion can be considered as a strong nonlinear system. A precise analytical solution is challenging to obtain, thus making it hard to dissect with routine diagnostic systems. Since tried-and-true logical systems are extremely difficult to undertake, soft computing methodologies are deemed having potential for such applications. This paper presents the support vector regression (SVR) methodology for sensor fusion to improve tracking ability. Radial basis function (RBF) and polynomial function are used as SVR kernel functions. The system combines Kalman filtering and soft computing principle, i.e., SVR, to structure an effective information combination method for the target framework. A radar-infrared system is proposed to adapt contextual changes and lessen the dubious unsettling influence of an information estimation from multisensory data. The experimental results show that an improvement in predictive accuracy and generalization capability can be achieved using the SVR with RBF kernel compared with the SVR with polynomial kernel approach.
