Abstract :

A research on data fusion techniques is increasing day to day due to wide application of sensor network in various different fields. To get more accurate result in these methods certain filters are used in addition to the above mentioned techniques. To test all these new techniques one needs to implement it on some simulators before using it in real world. There is no combine survey on all the techniques available for data fusion, filters used for fusion process and the simulators available for the deployment and checking the validity of the algorithm. So this paper presents the review of recent most widely used data fusion techniques, filters and simulators with its merits and demerits. In addition to this future direction of research are highlighted.
