JIPDA*: Automatic Target Tracking Avoiding Track Coalescence

You are here

Joint Integrated Probabilistic Data Association (JIPDA) is effective in automatic multi-target tracking in an environment of false and missing measurements. However, JIPDA suffers from coalescence of closely spaced tracks. This paper develops a coalescence avoiding version of JIPDA, which is named
JIPDA*. To accomplish this, the descriptor system approach is used that has previously been used for the development of JPDA*, i.e. a coalescence avoiding JPDA version. The effectiveness of JIPDA* is demonstrated through simulations.
