Multimodal sensor registration and calibration are crucially important aspects in distributed sensor fusion. Unknown relationships of sensors and joint probability distribution between sensory signals make the sensor fusion nontrivial. In this paper, we adopt a Mutual Information (MI) based approach for sensor registration and calibration. It is based on unsupervised learning of a nonparametric sensing model by maximizing mutual information between signal streams. Experiments were carried out in an office like environment with two laser sensors capturing arbitrarily moving people. Attributes of the moving targets are used. Problems due to target occlusions are alleviated by the multiple model tracker. The registration and calibration methodology does not require any artificially generated patterns or motions unlike other calibration methodologies. © 2006 IEEE.
