This work proposes a new method of fusion image using Dempster-Shafer theory and local variability (DST-LV). This method takes into account the behaviour of each pixel with its neighbours. It consists in calculating the quadratic distance between the value of the pixel I (x, y) of each point and the value of all the neighbouring pixels. Local variability is used to determine the mass function defined in DempsterShafer theory. The two classes of Dempster-Shafer theory studied are : the fuzzy part and the focused part. The results of the proposed method are significantly better when comparing them to results of other methods.
