Development of Practical PDA Logic for Multitarget Tracking by Microprocessor

  title={Development of Practical PDA Logic for Multitarget Tracking by Microprocessor},
  author={Robert J. Fitzgerald},
  journal={1986 American Control Conference},
A simplified form of probabilistic data association (PDA) logic was developed for real-time multitarget tracking by a microprocessor associated with a radar track-while-scan system. A variety of practical problems with the method led to a relatively complex set of algorithms, while certain fundamental shortcomings of the approach still threatened performance due to anomalous behavior in some situations. Ultimately, the weighted-average updating feature of the PDA approach was abandoned in favor… CONTINUE READING
