The objective of the ongoing work is to fuse information from uncertain environmental data taken by cameras, short range sensors including infrared and ultrasound sensors for strategic target recognition and task specific action in Mobile Robot applications. Our present goal in this paper is to demonstrate target recognition for service robot in a simple office environment. It is proposed to fuse all sensory signals obtained from multiple sensors over a fully layer-connected sensor network system that provides an equal opportunity competitive environment for sensory data where those bearing less uncertainty, less complexity and less inconsistencies with the overall goal survive, while others fade out.
