In connection with the general theories of multimodal integration (see
In connection with the principles of sensors integration proposed by
Crowley and Demazeau , it can be noticed that the first
three principles (common lexicon and coordinates system) cannot be avoided.
However, the fourth and the fifth principle (uncertainty and confidence)
are seldom considered, even though they are somehow in the essence of
Massaro's FLMP. The four models are schematically represented in
Figure C.5 : Schematic of the four integration models
Several variations of these models could be developed. Continuous links from a model to the other could even be elaborated, as it is the case in the modeling area, so that differences would be smoothed at the same time as the structures would become more complex. On the opposite, and in a spirit of methodological control, we will later on fix the architectures in their ``canonical'' form, so that the different options can be clearly compared.
