Topic: Multitarget-Multisensor Data Association
By: Lei Chen (MIT), Mujdat Cetin (MIT), Alan Willsky (MIT)
Multitarget-multisensor data association is a challenging problem, especially when the density of targets and sensors is high. The complexity of the problem grows exponentially in both the number of local targets and the number of sensors. There are many environments in which globally optimal solutions are not possible (e.g., due to communication constraints), or an approximate solution is acceptable. In this project, we apply the framework of graphical models on distributed data association, and develop efficient approaches for obtaining suboptimal solutions with specified performance guarantees for such cases.
