5 May 2011 Application of the smooth variable structure filter to a multi-target tracking problem
Author Affiliations +
The most popular and well-studied estimation method is the Kalman filter (KF), which was introduced in the 1960s. It yields a statistically optimal solution for linear estimation problems. The smooth variable structure filter (SVSF) is a relatively new estimation strategy based on sliding mode theory, and has been shown to be robust to modeling uncertainties. The SVSF makes use of an existence subspace and of a smoothing boundary layer to keep the estimates bounded within a region of the true state trajectory. This article discusses the application of two estimation strategies (the KF and the SVSF) on a multi-target tracking problem.
