Paper Abstract

This paper concerns a part of a general study on multisensor radar/IR tracking where the problem of track initiation in noisy environment is emphasized. A first approach to this problem, more precisely the consideration of uncertain probabilistic models via a multiple hypothesis filter (MHF), has been presented in a previous publication. For this purpose the theory of evidence has been used. In this article, a general view of the evaluation environment is described, in order to evaluate correctly the performances of the extension of MHF and to compare it with the standard MHF and with another tracking method. In a second part, a first multisensor approach is introduced. Different problems are shown.
