The para-normal Bayes multi-target filter and the spooky effect
MetadataShow full item record
The Probability Hypothesis Density (PHD) and Cardinalized PHD (CPHD) filters exhibit a counter intuitive behaviour called the ”spooky effect” where upon a missed detection, the PHD mass in the vicinity of the undetected target is shifted to the vicinity of the detected targets, regardless of the distance between the targets. This raises the question of whether spookiness is an artifact of the random finite set formulation of the multi-target filtering problem. Using a para-normal implementation of the labeled multi-target Bayes filter, we show that this filter does not exhibit the “spooky effect” observed in the PHD/CPHD filters.

Mahler, Ronald (2012)This paper describes a general approach for deriving PHD/CPHD filters that must estimate the background clutter process, rather than being provided with it a priori. I first derive general time- and measurementupdate ...
Hong Yoon, J.; Kim, Du Yong; Yoon, K. (2012)In this paper, we propose a novel implementation of the probability hypothesis density (PHD) filter based on the sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) method called SMC-PHD filter. The SMC-PHD filter is analogous to the sequential ...
Clark, D.; Ristić, B.; Vo, Ba-Ngu; Vo, Ba Tuong (2010)In many tracking scenarios, the amplitude of target returns are stronger than those coming from false alarms. This information can be used to improve the multiple-target state estimation by obtaining more accurate target ...
