A new K-nearest neighbor (KNN) statistic is introducted to fuse information from multiple sensors/features into a single dimensional decision space for electronic vision systems. Theorems establish the relationship of the KNN statistic to other probability density function distance measures such as the Kolmogorov-Smirnov Distance and the Tie Statistic. A new KNN search algorithm is presented along with factors for selecting K. Applications include cueing and texture recognition.
