Abstract: Multi-source image fusion is widely used as a technique for enhancement. The fusion technique improves the efficiency of subsequent advanced vision tasks or manual recognition by extracting the distinctive features of each of visible and infrared and retaining them in the fused image. On the basis of absorbing the research of many scholars at home and abroad, the definition and classification of image fusion are described through research generalization, the algorithms of multi-source fusion methods are systematically summarized, and the direction of further development of image fusion algorithms is analyzed.
