Title ML-MHT Approach to Tracking Dim Targets in Large Sensor Networks.
Publication Date Jul 2010
Media Count 8p
Personal Author C. Carthel S. Coraluppi
Abstract Poor individual sensor performance as well as a large number of sensor scans per time interval are two challenges for multi-target tracking is large sensor networks. We introduce a two-stage processing scheme (ML-MHT) to address the former issue, and another to address the latter issue (MHT2). We consider as well the combination of these two techniques (ML-MHT2). Simulation results are encouraging. Future work will include application of these techniques to more challenging multi-sensor datasets characterized by extremely poor detection and localization performance.
