Abstract: The purposes are to study how the multi-sensor Internet of Things (IoT) data fusion algorithm calculates in data fusion systems and improves the systems' fusion efficiency. An improved Weighted Least-Squares (WLS) algorithm is proposed for IoT data fusion, and how it processes massive data in a multi-sensor system is studied. Accordingly, a multi-sensor system for sports fitness is designed based on a data fusion algorithm. First, the purposes and demand for sports Application (APP) are analysed, to understand the problems and necessary improvements of such APP. Then, the implementation of the IoT and the classification of the data fusion algorithm of the IoT are explored. The WLS method is selected through comparison, and its implementation process and the data processing process are analysed and explained. Finally, the sports fitness system based on the IoT data fusion algorithm is designed and analysed. The results show that the wireless communication of a multi-sensor data fusion system is feasible and reliable. The variances calculated through the WLS method and the Arithmetic Mean (AM) method in data fusion are compared. The former value is about one-thousandth of the latter value, indicating that the data fusion based on WLS is advantageous over the traditional data fusion.
