Paper Abstract

The research in multitarget tracking has mainly focused on the development and implementation of efficient data association algorithms with acceptable performance. The Viterbi Data Association (VDA) algorithm has proven to have low computation cost and hence a good candidate for the extension to multiple target tracking case. In this paper, the VDA is implemented for tracking both the single and multiple maneuvering targets in clutter. The track initiator and the adaptive sliding window techniques are used so that the VDA can maintain a lock on the track. The performance of the algorithm is assessed via Mote-Carlo simulations. The computation complexity analysis reveals that the VDA is computationally more efficient over the known tracking techniques.
