Sensors, Vol. 19, Pages 2842: Refined PHD Filter for Multi-Target Tracking under Low Detection Probability (Sensors)

Radar target detection probability will decrease as the target echo signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) decreases, which has an adverse influence on the result of multi-target tracking. The performances of standard multi-target tracking algorithms degrade significantly under low detection probability in practice, especially when continuous miss detection occurs. Based on sequential Monte Carlo implementation of Probability Hypothesis Density (PHD) filter, this paper proposes a heuristic method called the Refined PHD (R-PHD) filter to improve multi-target tracking performance under low detection probability. In detail, this paper defines a survival probability which is dependent on target state, and labels individual extracted targets and corresponding particles. When miss detection occurs due to low detection probability, posterior particle weights will be revised according to the prediction step. Finally, we transform the target confirmation problem into a hypothesis test problem, and utilize sequential probability ratio test to distinguish real targets and false alarms in real time. Computer simulations with respect to different detection probabilities, average numbers of false alarms and continuous miss detection durations are provided to corroborate the superiority of the proposed method, compared with standard PHD filter, Cardinalized PHD (CPHD) filter and Cardinality Balanced Multi-target Multi-Bernoulli (CBMeMBer) filter.
