In this paper, we present a new opto-neural approach to the problem of multi-target tracking. The proposed hybrid opto-neural system uses an optical joint transform correlator to reduce the massive input target data into a few correlation peak signals and then a massive parallel computational neural network algorithm is used for effective target tracking data association based on these correlation signals. For real-time operation, a nonlinear joint transform correlator is optically implemented using a high resolution LCD spatial light modulator (SLM) and a new track based on field (TBF) neural network tracking algorithm is introduced to tackle the effective multi-target data association in a real-time basis. Through the computer simulation, the performance of the proposed hybrid opto-neural tracking system is evaluated and some experimental results on simultaneous tracking of multi-targets are also provided.
