Current multisensory system face data communication overhead in integrating disparate sensor data to build a coherent and accurate global phenomenon. We present here a novel hardware and software co-design platform for a heterogeneous data fusion solution based on a perceptual decision making approach (the drift-diffusion model). It provides a convenient infrastructure for sensor data acquisition and data integration and only uses a single chip Xilinx ZYNQ-7000 XC7Z020 AP SOC. A case study of controlling the moving speed of a single ground-based robot, according to physiological states of the operator based on heart rates, is conducted and demonstrates the possibility of integrated sensor data fusion architecture. The results of our DDM-based data integration shows a better correlation coefficient with the raw ECG signal compare with a simply piecewise approach.
