Paper Abstract

In this paper, it is shown that multiple target tracking without having the ghosting problem can be achieved by implementing three SME filters in parallel, each of which is defined in terms of 2N functionals. The three SME filters are defined so that the first one tracks the (x,y) coordinate positions and velocities, the second one tracks the (y,z) coordinate positions and velocities and finally, the third filter tracks the (y,z) coordinate positions and velocities. A novel strategy is proposed for combining the outputs of the three SME filters to yield the estimates of the positions and velocities of the targets in 3D space. The performance of the resulting parallel SME filter is investigated via computer simulations.
