Paper Abstract

In this paper, an effective method is proposed to compute the data association probabilities in the joint probabilistic data association (JPDA) method. In this method, the a posteriori probability of the origin of each measurement required in JPDA, is computed directly, based on an approximate formula. The Computational and memory requirements of this method decrease greatly compared to the original JPDA. Simulation results show that despite great reduction in computational complexity, the algorithm approximates an exact JPDA more accurately than previously proposed simplifying methods such as SPDA.
