5 January 2004 Overview of multiple-model methods for maneuvering target tracking
Author Affiliations +
This is the fifth part of a series of papers that provide a comprehensive survey of techniques for tracking maneuvering targets without addressing the so-called measurement-origin uncertainty. Part I and Part II deal with target motion models. Part III covers measurement models and associated techniques. Part IV is concerned with tracking techniques that are based on decisions regarding target maneuvers. This part surveys the multiple-model methods---the use of multiple models (and filters) simultaneously---which is the prevailing approach to maneuvering target tracking in the recent years. The survey is presented in a structured way, centered around three generations of algorithms: autonomous, cooperating, and variable structure. It emphasizes on the underpinning of each algorithm and covers various issues in algorithm design, application, and performance.
