Paper Abstract

The work considers sensor fusion in a heterogeneous network of proximity and bearings-only sensors for multiple target tracking. Specifically, various particle implementations of the probability hypothesis density filter are proposed that consider two different fusion strategies: 1) the traditional iterated-corrector approach, and 2) explicit fusion of the multitarget density. This work also investigates sensor type (proximity or bearings-only) selection via the Renyi entropy criteria. The simulation results demonstrate comparable localization performances for the two fusion methods, and they show that sensor type selection usually outperforms single sensor type performance.
