PF-HMap: A Target Track Maintenance Approach for Mobile Sensor Platforms with Intermittent and Regional Measurements

  title={PF-HMap: A Target Track Maintenance Approach for Mobile Sensor Platforms with Intermittent and Regional Measurements},
  author={Zhijun Tang and Umit Ozguner},
  journal={Proceedings of the 45th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control},
A new approach, the particle-filter-and-hospitability-map algorithm (PF-HMap), is proposed to deal with the general target track maintenance problem for mobile sensor platforms with intermittent and regional measurements. The posterior probability density function (PDF) of the target state is maintained on-line through a particle filter. The hospitability map (HMap), which describes the terrain-dependent motion capability of ground targets, is encoded into the prediction stage of the particle… CONTINUE READING
