Abstract:

Conventional target tracking approaches rely on numerical correlation over successive frames on a window around the target. They are therefore sensitive to partial obscuration and changes in target and background appearances. Furthermore, multiple-target tracking requires replication of the hardware. In this report, we present the development of a multiple-target tracking approach based on a dynamic scene model derived from the analysis of a time sequence of imagery. Simulation results demonstrate multiple-target tracking in cluttered backgrounds and in imagery from fast-moving platforms. The approach can be implemented as an integral part of the Honeywell target screener system. Author
