Paper Abstract

This paper discusses some problems in evaluating the performance of multi-target tracking (MTT) systems. Various performance measures for the MTT systems are first described. These include: correlation statistics; track purity; track maintenance statistics; and kinematic statistics. Examples of single measures of performance are also given. The issues involved in the analytical prediction of performance are briefly discussed. Detailed descriptions of the computer simulation evaluation for the MTT systems include: test scenario selection, sensor modeling, data collection and the analysis of results. Two performam evaluation methods, namely: a two step method and a track classification approach are explored in this paper. The performam evaluation techniques are being incorporated in a MTT testbed developed in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Royal Military College of Canada, Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
