Performance evaluation of multi-bernoulli conjugate priors for multi-target filtering
Paper in proceedings, 2017
In this paper, we evaluate the performance of labelled and unlabelled multi-Bernoulli conjugate priors for multi-target filtering. Filters are compared in two different scenarios with performance assessed using the generalised optimal sub-pattern assignment (GOSPA) metric. The first scenario under consideration is tracking of well-spaced targets. The second scenario is more challenging and considers targets in close proximity, for which filters may suffer from coalescence. We analyse various aspects of the filters in these two scenarios. Though all filters have pros and cons, the Poisson multi-Bernoulli filters arguably provide the best overall performance concerning GOSPA and computational time.
