Paper Abstract

This paper presents a simple target-tracking algorithm for use on a vehicle platform for landmine detection. Data from three landmine detection sensors mounted at the front of the vehicle enhance the probability of detection and, when combined via data fusion, reduce the false alarm rate to practical levels. The output of the data fusion process is a target position that must be tracked to either a marking nozzle array or point confirmation sensor mounted at the back of the vehicle.
