The issue of information fusion is getting more popular with the growth of the amount of data. The applications of these integrated data are varied in many areas such as healthcare, finance, or multisensory, etc. This paper introduces an information fusion method to integrate the sensor data for the multi-robot urban search and rescue operations. The partially duplicated reports from robots are represented as a linear system to have better knowledge of inconsistency between reports. The approximate number of targets of the multi-robot task and locations of these targets could be provided from the linear system. This multi-robot task is conducted continuously as robots traveling terrains and generating historical data. In this paper, we show how to perform information fusion associated with robots reports, as well as how report sparsity affect the performance.
