Adaptive Smoothing Spline for Trajectory Reconstruction
MetadataShow full item record
Trajectory reconstruction is the process of inferring the path of a moving object between successive observations. In this paper, we propose a smoothing spline -- which we name the V-spline -- that incorporates position and velocity information and a penalty term that controls acceleration. We introduce a particular adaptive V-spline designed to control the impact of irregularly sampled observations and noisy velocity measurements. A cross-validation scheme for estimating the V-spline parameters is given and we detail the performance of the V-spline on four particularly challenging test datasets. Finally, an application of the V-spline to vehicle trajectory reconstruction in two dimensions is given, in which the penalty term is allowed to further depend on known operational characteristics of the vehicle.

Liu, Xin; Xia, Jianhong (Cecilia); Gunson, J.; Wright, Graeme; Arnold, L. (2014)This study presents two new methods for significant wave height interpolation, and compares the results from them with the cubic spline method for different durations of wave record gaps. Information about wave height is ...
