Paper Abstract

This paper reviews a research program aimed at extracting and utilizing object localization information from sequences of visible band and infrared imagery. The techniques are entirely passive and are based on the relative positions of objects and features taken from a pre-prepared scene database. The techniques used in this project are based on existing techniques for navigation by Scene Matching and Area Correlation (SMAC) and have been adapted for the object localisation task. The paper also considers the use of a Multiple Hypothesis Tracking (MHT) system for the automatic tracking of the known ground features.
