Image fusion techniques have been used for variety of applications like medical imaging, navigation, homeland security and most importantly in military requirements. Different techniques for image fusion are there and already being extended for real time video fusion. In this paper, a new technique for video image fusion has been given. We exploit fuzzy techniques for image fusion. This approach has already been implemented for multi image fusion for different applications. In the fuzzy approach, pixel of one image is fused with the corresponding pixel value of other image. Fusion is based on the associated rules and membership grades of the frames. For the video image fusion, frames are extracted from the two incoming videos and registered. Size and distortion of the frames are checked for the suitability of the fusion process. After frame wise fusion using fuzzy approach, they are sequenced back for video display. Various other issues like real time implementation, scene effect, adaptation required according to application and image alignments have been discussed. We hope that algorithm developed for video image fusion process in this paper will prove to be very effective for real time image sensor fusion process.
