In order to meet the higher requirements in military technology, automation, and intelligence, increasingly importance has been attached to the information fusion for multi-sensor systems. Dempster-Shafer evidence theory is a typical method of uncertainty information fusion due to its adjustability in uncertainty modeling; whereas classical evidence theory is still insufficient in solving high-conflict problems. This assumption studies the multi-sensor information fusion model based on evidence theory from the following aspects. First, it introduces the basic principles of evidence theory, and focuses on how to use triangular fuzzy numbers to obtain basic probability assignments. Second, the method of weighting the evidence using the reliability of the sensor is introduced. The reliability of the sensor is divided into two parts: static reliability and dynamic reliability. Moreover, this model proposes the irrationality of Deng's entropy weight for the binary target recognition problem, and improves the entropy weight in sensor dynamic weights. Finally, on the basis of the above research, sensor sensing data is applied to this model. Through simulation experiments, the validity of the model is proved and the target can be accurately identified.
