Data association is the process of relating sensor measurements in a data fusion system. It can be structured in a basic framework very similar to that of the classic traveling salesman problem. The derivation of the energy function is presented, and the solution is based on a modified Hopfield network which uses the Runge–Kutta method and Aiyer’s network structure. The neural data association is then applied to the problem of multiple-target tracking (MTT). The proposed neural MTT system consists of a modified Hough transform track initiator, a Kalman filter state estimator and the Hopfield probabilistic data association. Real-life air surveillance data are used to evaluate the practicality of the neural MTT system, and the results show that the neural system works efficiently in real-life tracking environments.
