Paper Abstract

The δ-generalized labeled multi-Bernoulli (δ-GLMB) tracker is the first multiple hypothesis tracking (MHT)-like tracker that is provably Bayes-optimal. However, in its basic form, the δ-GLMB provides no mechanism for adaptively initializing targets at their first appearance from unlabeled measurements. By introducing a new multitarget likelihood function that accounts for new target appearance, a data-driven δ-GLMB tracker is derived that automatically initializes new targets in the tracker measurement update. Monte Carlo results of simulated multitarget tracking problems demonstrate improved multitarget tracking accuracy over comparable adaptive birth methods.
