A Multi-Mode Sensor Management Approach in the Missions of Target Detecting and Tracking
AbstractIn this paper, sensor management is divided into two processes: sensor deployment and sensor scheduling, after which a multi-mode sensor management approach based on risk theory is proposed. Firstly, the definition of risk is provided, on the basis of which the target detecting risk and the target tracking risk are separately presented, along with their computing methods. Secondly, when deploying sensors, the objective is to obtain the minimum target detecting risk. Similarly, when scheduling sensors, the objective is to obtain the minimal sum of target detecting risk and target tracking risk. Furthermore, to obtain sensor management schemes according to the objective functions, the improved bee colony algorithm based on double-probability and in combination with the particle swarm optimization algorithm is proposed. Finally, simulations are conducted, which indicate that the models and the algorithm in the paper possess some advantages over existing ones. View Full-Text
