With the increasing application of wireless sensor networks and the emergence and application of Internet, information fusion technology has gradually integrated into social life, bringing unprecedented convenience to people's lives. Traditionally, target recognition can only rely on a sensor of a nature to collect target data. Although the operation is simple, the disadvantages are obvious: it can only be applied in a simple environment, and the recognition efficiency and recognition accuracy are low. In this paper, the multi-sensors of the same or different nature are effectively combined, and the original information of the target is obtained at the same time. The multi-azimuth and multi-attribute eigenvalue data of the target are obtained by the feature extraction method, and the feature value data is passed through the feature fusion algorithm. Feature fusion is performed to effectively improve recognition efficiency and recognition accuracy.
