Abstract:

This report provides the necessary foundation for tests of selected gating algorithms for multiple-target tracking. We investigate a nonhierarchical cluster algorithm and several near-neighbor algorithms. The discussion covers accuracy and scaling of cost with the number of objects being tracked. We estimate the scaling theory and discuss data set requirements and appropriate quantitative measures of performance.
