I didn't make it through your entire message, but this basic approach
(above) seems reasonable to me. You may get comments (some crabby) on
here arguing whether this is fuzzy logic or probability or whatever.
Personally, the names are less important to me than the techniques. You
might look into uncertainty management systems in general (fuzzy logic,
probability) and particular engineering subjects like sensor fusion,
occupancy grids, etc.
