Paper Abstract

Large classes of data association problems in multiple hypothesis tracking applications, including sensor fusion, can be formulated as multidimensional assignment problems. Lagrangian relaxation methods have been shown to solve these problems to the noise level in the problem in real-time, especially for dense scenarios and for multiple scans of data from multiple sensors. This work presents a new class of algorithms that circumvent the difficulties of similar previous algorithms. The computational complexity of the new algorithms is shown via some numerical examples to be linear in the number of arcs.
