Posterior Cramér-Rao lower bounds for extended target tracking with random matrices

2016-08-04
This paper presents posterior Cramér-Rao lower bounds (PCRLB) for extended target tracking (ETT) when the extent states of the targets are represented with random matrices. PCRLB recursions are derived for kinematic and extent states taking complicated expectations involving Wishart and inverse Wishart distributions. For some analytically intractable expectations, Monte Carlo integration is used. The bounds for the semi-major and minor axes of the extent ellipsoid are obtained as well as those for the extent matrix elements. The resulting bounds are compared on simulations with the performance of a state-of-the-art ETT algorithm employing random matrices for extent estimation.

Parametric and posterior Cramér-Rao lower bounds for extended target tracking in a random matrix framework
Sarıtaş, Elif; Orguner, Umut; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
This thesis presents the parametric and posterior Cramér-Rao lower bounds (CRLB) for extended target tracking (ETT) in a random matrix framework. ETT is an area of target tracking in which the common assumption of point targets does not hold due to the recent improvements in sensor technology. With the increased sensor capability, targets can generate more than one measurement in a single scan depending on their size. Therefore, not only the target’s kinematical state but also its extension can be estimated...
A PHD Filter for Tracking Multiple Extended Targets Using Random Matrices
Granstrom, Karl; Orguner, Umut (2012-11-01)
This paper presents a random set based approach to tracking of an unknown number of extended targets, in the presence of clutter measurements and missed detections, where the targets' extensions are modeled as random matrices. For this purpose, the random matrix framework developed recently by Koch et al. is adapted into the extended target PHD framework, resulting in the Gaussian inverse Wishart PHD (GIW-PHD) filter. A suitable multiple target likelihood is derived, and the main filter recursion is present...
Variational smoothing for extended target tracking with random matrices
Kartal, Savaş Erdem; Orguner, Umut; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-4-05)
In this thesis, two Bayesian smoothers are proposed for random matrix based extended target tracking (ETT). The proposed smoothers are based on the variational Bayes techniques and they are derived for an extended target model without and with orientation. The random matrix models of Feldman et al. and Tuncer and Özkan are used as the extended target models without and with orientation, respectively. The performance of both smoothers is evaluated using simulation results on two different scenarios. It is se...
Interacting multiple model probabilistic data association filter using random matrices for extended target tracking
Özpak, Ezgi; Orguner, Umut; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
In this thesis, an Interacting Multiple Model – Probabilistic Data Association (IMM-PDA) filter for tracking extended targets using random matrices is proposed. Unlike the extended target trackers in the literature which use multiple alternative partitionings/clusterings of the set of measurements, the algorithm proposed here considers a single partitioning/clustering of the measurement data which makes it suitable for applications with low computational resources. When the IMM-PDA filter uses clustered mea...
