Tracking Maneuvering Targets in a World of Netted Sensors

Georgia Tech Research Institute

Presentation Menu


With the advancement of sensor and communications systems technologies and the desire for better surveillance, the interest in sensor netting has grown significantly over the past few years. This lecture starts by motivating the need for multisensor/multitarget tracking and then develops the fundamental concepts of single target tracking, tracking in the presence of maneuvers, multiple-model tracking, sensor resource management, multitarget tracking, and multiple sensor tracking. Future directions of sensor netting for target tracking and the associated technical challenges are discussed. An illustrative approach with minimal use of equations is taken in this lecture in order to reach a broad audience.
