  • The Continuous Time Roots of the Interacting Multiple Model Filter

    This chapter presents continuous time roots of Interacting Multiple Model (IMM), including their use for maneuvering target tracking in case of continuous time mode switching events and observations that happen at nondeterministic discrete moments in time. It addresses the filtering of a Hidden Markov Model, with emphasis on the filter equations and the development of transformations which allow a robust implementation of the continuous¿¿?time HMM filter. The chapter characterizes the evolution of the joint conditional density of the mode and the state of a Markov jump system. It develops a decomposition of the joint density into coupled evolutions of the conditional mode probabilities and the mode conditional state. The chapter focuses on Markov jump linear systems, and the development of filter equations for the conditional evolution of first¿¿? and second¿¿?order moments. It addresses continuous¿¿?discrete filtering for the situation that the observation moments are nondeterministic, and that mode switchings do not coincide with these observation moments.

  • Multitarget Tracking Using Multiple Hypothesis Tracking

    The track¿¿?oriented multiple hypothesis tracking (MHT) algorithm is one of the most advanced algorithms for multisensor Multitarget tracking (MTT) for real¿¿?world complex problems. An MTT system uses one or more sensors such as radar, sonar, electro¿¿?optical, video, infra¿¿?red, multispectral, hyperspectral, and unattended ground sensor (acoustic and seismic). Two classes of Sequential Monte Carlo (SMC)¿¿?based multitarget algorithms are commonly used: Particle filter (PF)¿¿?based algorithms; and Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC)¿¿?based algorithms. MHT is particularly effective in dense multitarget settings and in highly cluttered environments. The chapter discusses the current nonlinear filtering algorithms. Suitable filters can be selected for the track filter given the nature and complexity of the tracking problem. A collection of dynamic and measurement models commonly used in filters are presented for a wide variety of tracking applications. The chapter presents a detailed hybrid¿¿?state derivation of the track¿¿?oriented MHT equations following the formulation by Kurien with some minor modifications.

  • Tracking and Data Fusion for Ground Surveillance

    Ground surveillance comprises track extraction and maintenance of single ground moving vehicles and convoys, as well as low¿¿?flying objects such as helicopters or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). For long¿¿?range, wide¿¿?area, all¿¿?weather, and all¿¿?day surveillance operating at high data update rates, Ground Moving Target Indication (GMTI) radar proves to be the sensor system of choice. This chapter concentrates on the issues such as GMTI clutter notch and signal strength measurements. GMTI models are adapted to Space¿¿?Time Adaptive Processing (STAP) techniques in that the detection probability assumed in the tracking process is described as a function of the GMTI¿¿?specific clutter notch. The chapter shows how digital road maps can be integrated into the Bayesian tracking scheme and how they contribute to an improved tracking. It uses a Gaussian sum approach, which can seamlessly be integrated into standard Kalman filter¿¿?based tracking algorithms.

  • Performance Bounds for Target Tracking: Computationally Efficient Formulations and Associated Applications

    This chapter presents a review of recent developments in the calculation of mean square error (MSE) tracker performance bounds, together with examples that demonstrate how such bounds can be used as the basis for performing online sensor management. It defines the basic filtering problem, and provides details of a general class of lower bounds that includes as special cases the posterior Cramer¿¿?Rao lower bound (PCRLB), Bhattacharya lower bound (BLB), Weiss¿¿?Weinstein lower bound (WWLB), and Bobrovsky¿¿?Zakai lower bound (BZLB). The chapter reviews developments in the calculation of computationally efficient expressions for the PCRLB in cluttered environments. The chapter considers the first of two sensor management applications, providing a framework for the deployment of stationary sensors in tracking manoeuvring targets. It considers the problem of UAV trajectory planning in tracking a highly manoeuvring airborne target, and demonstrates that the PCRLB can be effectively utilized as a measure of system performance.

  • Track¿¿?Before¿¿?Detect Techniques

    This chapter presents a review of several recent algorithms for track¿¿?before¿¿?detect (TBD) and assesses their performance, and presents an outline of the historical context of TBD. It also motivates the study of TBD with an example where conventional tracking fails. The chapter reviews a number of TBD algorithms: Baum Welch algorithm; Viterbi algorithm; the Particle Filter; Maximum¿¿?Likelihood Probabilistic Data Association (PDA) algorithm; and Histogram¿¿?Probabilistic Multi¿¿?Hypothesis Tracking (H¿¿?PMHT). It presents an example application of TBD within a maritime surveillance context. H¿¿?PMHT is a unique method for TBD. The chapter focuses on the approach of TBD as a tracking/estimation problem rather than the detection problem perspective. Historically many TBD algorithms have been batch methods, requiring the collection of a sequence of data before the TBD algorithm is applied. The chapter presents an example application of TBD where substantial improvement is obtained over conventional tracking.

  • Sweep Coverage Along a Line

    This chapter develops a set of decentralized algorithms for the coordination of a mobile robotic sensor network to address a problem of sweep coverage along a given line. The control laws are based on some consensus algorithms that are computationally efficient and easily implementable. To achieve sweep coverage, the control law drives the network of robotic mobile sensors to form a sensor barrier that moves perpendicularly to the path at a given speed. Also, the separation between each pair of the robots in the sensor barrier can be adjusted. Numerical simulations are presented for a number of scenarios to illustrate the proposed distributed algorithm. To show its practical applicability, the chapter provides computer simulation results for an illustrative example of a sea exploration operation with multiple vessels.

    <p> New data acquisition techniques are emerging and are providing fast and efficient means for multidimensional spatial data collection. Airborne LIDAR surveys, SAR satellites, stereo-photogrammetry and mobile mapping systems are increasingly used for the digital reconstruction of the environment. All these systems provide extremely high volumes of raw data, often enriched with other sensor data (e.g., beam intensity). Improving methods to process and visually analyze this massive amount of geospatial and user-generated data is crucial to increase the efficiency of organizations and to better manage societal challenges. </p> <p> Within this context, this book proposes an up-to-date view of computational methods and tools for spatio-temporal data fusion, multivariate surface generation, and feature extraction, along with their main applications for surface approximation and rainfall analysis. The book is intended to attract interest from different fields, such s computer vision, computer graphics, geomatics, and remote sensing, working on the common goal of processing 3D data. To this end, it presents and compares methods that process and analyze the massive amount of geospatial data in order to support better management of societal challenges through more timely and better decision making, independent of a specific data modeling paradigm (e.g., 2D vector data, regular grids or 3D point clouds). </p> <p> We also show how current research is developing from the traditional layered approach, adopted by most GIS softwares, to intelligent methods for integrating existing data sets that might contain important information on a geographical area and environmental phenomenon. These services combine traditional map-oriented visualization with fully 3D visual decision support methods and exploit semantics-oriented information (e.g., a-priori knowledge, annotations, segmentations) when processing, merging, and integrating big pre-exis ing data sets. </p>
