Paper “Adaptive Consensus-based Distributed System for Multisensor Multitarget Tracking“, by S.S. Stanković, N. Ilić and M.S. Stanković, has been published in IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems (IEEE TAES)!
The paper proposes a new comprehensive system for distributed multisensor multitarget tracking, with all of its functions, including track initiation, confirmation, maintenance and termination, as well as track-to-track association and fusion, built around the concept of the probability of target existence and an adaptive consensus scheme. Stability of the proposed system is studied for the steady state and time-varying regimes. The system as a whole achieves high performance close to the centralized solution, outperforming all the comparable existing state-of-the-art approaches, keeping much lower communication and computation requirements.
