Paper Abstract

The Probabilistic Multiple Hypothesis Tracker (PMHT) has previously been augmented and modified to deal with target maneuver. Unfortunately, although the resulting procedure tracks maneuvering targets reasonably well, estimation of the maneuver process (i.e. the hidden Markov Model (HMM)) is not particularly reactive. In this paper, the PMHT is further investigated and several PMHT variants for maneuvering targets are discussed these include the ideas from Logothetis et al. and from Pulford and La Scala; the incorporation of the Interacting Multiple Mode (IMM) formalism to the PMHT; the extension of the “turbo” PMHT. We finally compare these EM-based tracking schemes and provide the simulation results on the second benchmark problem from Blair et al.
