This paper deals with a method for removing a ghost target that is not a real object from the output of a multiple object-tracking algorithm. This method uses an artificial neural network (multilayer perceptron) and introduces a structure, learning, verification, and evaluation method for the artificial neural network. The implemented system was tested at an intersection in a city center. Results from a 28-min measurement were 88% accurate when the multilayer perceptron for ghost target classification successfully detected the ghost targets, and 6.7% inaccurate when ghost targets were mistaken for actual targets. This method is expected to contribute to the advancement of intelligent transportation systems if the weaknesses revealed during the evaluation of the system are complemented and refined.
