Paper Abstract

Tracking moving vehicles has received less attention than its its aerial counterpart. The smooth velocity transitions common to aircraft are replaced with abrupt turns and and speed changes. Though the kinematic evolution of a ground vehicle is more complex, the path is more restricted. For example, if target motion is constrained by a terrain map, the topography should be integrated into the tracking algorithm. This paper shows by means of an example that the Gaussian wavelet estimator is particularly suited to map-enhanced estimation.
