Multisensor RFS Filters for Unknown and Changing Detection Probability
AbstractThe detection probability is an important parameter in multisensor multitarget tracking. The existing multisensor multi-Bernoulli (MS-MeMBer) filter and multisensor cardinalized probability hypothesis density (MS-CPHD) filter require that detection probability is a priori. However, in reality, the value of the detection probability is constantly changing due to the influence of sensors, targets, and other environmental characteristics. Therefore, to alleviate the performance deterioration caused by the mismatch of the detection probability, this paper applies the inverse gamma Gaussian mixture (IGGM) distribution to both the MS-MeMBer filter and the MS-CPHD filter. Specifically, the feature used for detection is assumed to obey the inverse gamma distribution and is statistically independent of the target’s spatial position. The feature is then integrated into the target state to iteratively estimate the target detection probability as well as the motion state. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed methods can achieve a better filtering performance in scenarios with unknown and changing detection probability. It is also shown that the distribution of the sensors has a vital influence on the filtering accuracy, and the filters perform better when sensors are dispersed in the monitoring area. View Full-Text
