Tutorial: Introduction to multiple target tracking


Abstract: This talk goes through the components in generic single-scan target tracking algorithms from filtering to data association, track initiation, and termination. In many areas, reference is made to functions in the open-source copyleft-free Tracker Component Library (available online) so that attendees can rapidly apply the algorithms that are discussed.


Biography: David Frederic Crouse received B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering in 2005, 2008, and 2011 from the University of Connecticut (UCONN). He also received a B.A. degree in German from UCONN for which he spent a year at the Ruprecht-Karls Universität in Heidelberg, Germany. He is the recipient of the 2016 Young Investigator Award from the International Society on Information Fusion and the recipient of a 2015 Alan Berman Research Publication award from the Naval Research Laboratory for the paper “Basic Tracking Using Nonlinear Continuous-Time Dynamic Models.” He is currently employed at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C. and serves as associate editor in chief at the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Magazine.
