Probabilistic Near Mid-Air Collision Avoidance

  title={Probabilistic Near Mid-Air Collision Avoidance},
  author={Per-Johan Nordlund and Fredrik Gustafsson},
We propose a probabilistic method to compute the near mid-air collision risk as a function of predicted ight trajectory. The computations use state estimate and covariance from a target tracking lter based on angle-only sensors such as digital video cameras. The majority of existing work is focused on risk estimation at a certain time instant. Here we derive an expression for the integrated risk over the critical time horizon. This is possible using probability for level-crossing, and the… CONTINUE READING
