In this paper, we address the problem of multi-target detection and tracking over a network of separately located Doppler-shift measuring sensors. For this challenging problem, we propose to use the probability hypothesis density (PHD) filter and present two implementations of the PHD filter, namely the sequential Monte Carlo PHD (SMC-PHD) and the Gaussian mixture PHD (GM-PHD) filters. Performances of both filters are carefully studied and compared for the considered challenging tracking problem. Simulation results show that both PHD filter implementations successfully track multiple targets using only Doppler shift measurements. Moreover, as a proof-of-concept, an experimental setup consisting of a network of microphones and a loudspeaker was prepared. Experimental study results reveal that it is possible to track multiple ground targets using acoustic Doppler shift measurements in a passive multi-static scenario. We observed that the GM-PHD is more effective, efficient and easy to implement than the SMC-PHD filter.

Gaussian mixture PHD filter for multi-target tracking using passive doppler-only measurements
Guldogan, Mehmet B.; Orguner, Umut; Gustafsson, Fredrik (2012-05-17)
In this paper, we analyze the performance of the Gaussian mixture probability hypothesis density (GM-PHD) filter in tracking multiple non-cooperative targets using a passive sensor network. Non-cooperative transmissions from illuminators of opportunity like GSM base stations, FM radio transmitters or digital broadcasters are exploited by non-directional separately located Doppler measuring sensors. Clutter, missed detections and multi-static Doppler variances are incorporated into a realistic multi-target s...

Random Matrix Based Extended Target Tracking with Orientation: A New Model and Inference
Tuncer, Barkın; Özkan, Emre (2021-02-01)
In this study, we propose a novel extended target tracking algorithm which is capable of representing the extent of dynamic objects as an ellipsoid with a time-varying orientation angle. A diagonal positive semi-definite matrix is defined to model objects' extent within the random matrix framework where the diagonal elements have inverse-Gamma priors. The resulting measurement equation is non-linear in the state variables, and it is not possible to find a closed-form analytical expression for the true poste...
Distributed Target Tracking with Propagation Delayed Measurements
Orguner, Umut (2009-07-09)
This paper presents a framework for making distributed target tracking under significant signal propagation delays between the target and the sensors. Each sensor considered makes estimation using its own measurements compensating for the involved signal propagation delay using a deterministic sampling based algorithm proposed previously. Since the individual sensor readings might not be enough to localize the target, the sensors have to share their estimates with each other at specific time instants and co...
Multitarget tracking performance metric: deficiency aware subpattern assignment
Oksuz, Kemal; CEMGİL, ALİ TAYLAN (2018-03-01)
Multitarget tracking is a sequential estimation problem where conditioned on noisy sensor measurements, state variables of several targets need to be estimated recursively. In this study, the authors propose a novel performance measure for multitarget tracking named as Deficiency Aware Subpattern Assignment (DASA), that can be used to consistently compare algorithms in a broad spectrum of formulations ranging from conventional data association methods to random finite set based multitarget tracking algorith...
