Paper Abstract

Bias phenomenon in multiple target tracking has been observed for some time. Beginning with a new view of a tracking algorithm structure, this paper is devoted to a study of the bias resulting from the miscorrelation in data association. The main result of this paper is a necessary condition for miscorrelation to cause bias. Relying on the main result, one new step is added to the tracking algorithm structure to compensate the bias generated by miscorrelation. A case study on the bias phenomenon in global nearest neighbor tracking is launched as a practice of the ideas and results presented in this paper. Tracking examples are given as an illustration. A discussion of several problems related to our results is given in the end of this paper.
