Multiellipsoidal extended target tracking with known extent using sequential Monte Carlo framework

Kara, Suleyman Fatih
Özkan, Emre
In this paper, we consider a variant of the extended target tracking (ETT) problem, namely the multiellipsoidal ETT problem. In multiellipsoidal ETT, target extent is represented by multiple ellipses, which correspond to the origin of the measurements on the target surface. The problem involves estimating the target's kinematic state and solving the association problem between the measurements and the ellipses. We cast the problem in a sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) framework and investigate different marginalization strategies to find an efficient particle filter. Under the known extent assumption, we define association variables to find the correct association between the measurements and the ellipses; hence, the posterior involves both discrete and continuous random variables. By expressing the measurement likelihood as a mixture of Gaussians we derive and employ a marginalized particle filter for the independent association variables without sampling the discrete states. We compare the performance of the method with its alternatives and illustrate the gain in nonstandard marginalization.


State-space identification of switching linear discrete time-periodic systems with known scheduling signals
Uyanik, Ismail; Hamzacebi, Hasan; Ankaralı, Mustafa Mert (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, 2019-01-01)
In this paper, we propose a novel frequency domain state-space identification method for switching linear discrete time-periodic (LDTP) systems with known scheduling signals. The state-space identification problem of linear time-invariant (LTI) systems has been widely studied both in the time and frequency domains. Indeed, there have been several studies that also concentrated on state-space identification of both continuous and discrete linear time-periodic (LTP) systems. The focus in this study is the fam...
Non-Maxwellian locally-conformal PML absorbers for finite element mesh truncation
Ozgun, Ozlem; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2007-03-01)
We introduce the locally-conformal perfectly matched layer (PML) approach, which is an easy and straightforward PML implementation, to the problem of mesh truncation in the finite element method (FEM). This method is based on a locally-defined complex coordinate transformation which has no explicit dependence on the differential geometric characteristics of the PML-free space interface. As a result, it is possible to handle challenging PML geometries with interfaces having arbitrary curvature, especially th...

Karaosmanoglu, Bariscan; Ergül, Özgür Salih (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017-01-01)
A recently developed numerical technique for improving the accuracy of the magnetic-field integral equation and the combined-field integral equation with low-order discretizations using the Rao-Wilton-Glisson functions is demonstrated on iterative solutions of large-scale complex problems, in order to prove the effectiveness of the proposed strategy as an alternative way for accurate and efficient analysis of multifrequency applications.
Performance analysis of adaptive loading OFDM under Rayleigh fading
Canpolat, B; Tanik, Y (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2004-07-01)
In this paper, we investigate the performance of adaptive loading orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) under Rayleigh fading with maximal ratio-combining (MRC) diversity at the receiver. We assume that channel-state information is available at both the transmitter and the receiver. Closed-form expressions for the lower bound on the average capacity of OFDM transmission under Rayleigh fading are provided for ideal MRC diversity. Simple approximate expressions for the average capacity of the Rayl...
Iterative leap-field domain decomposition method: a domain decomposition finite element algorithm for 3D electromagnetic boundary value problems
Ozgun, O.; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2010-04-01)
The authors introduce the iterative leap-field domain decomposition method that is tailored to the finite element method, by combining the concept of domain decomposition and the Huygens' Principle. In this method, a large-scale electromagnetic boundary value problem is partitioned into a number of suitably-defined 'small' and manageable subproblems whose solutions are assembled to obtain the global solution. The main idea of the method is the iterative application of the Huygens' Principle to the fields ra...
