Paper Abstract

Modern target tracking systems perform different tasks among which are target detection, selection and tracking. In this study, we describe a target selection technique based on Utility Theory. The utility of each target is assumed to be a linear combination of some basis functions that act on certain features of the target such as size, intensity, speed and direction. The unknown parameters of the basis functions and their weights are selected using a descent type optimization technique. Simulation results are presented.
