Paper Abstract

Without range measurements, a sensor platform must execute a nontrivial motion if good target location estimates are to be generated with conventional tracking algorithms. This paper shows that even a stationary image-based tracker can provide good location estimates when the target maneuvers. A tight cover region is generated with the proposed algorithm, and is compared with a more general bound.
