Rao-Blackwellized particle filtering in multiple target trackingMS74

This talk is concerned with application of Rao-Blackwellized particle filtering to multiple target tracking. In particular, the aim is to discuss formulation of track-based multiple target tracking as Rao-Blackwellized particle filtering in exactly or approximately conditionally Gaussian state-space models. In that formulation, the unknown data-associations and the unknown number of targets act as the non-linear variables which are sampled with sequential Monte Carlo. The aim is also to discuss the corresponding smoothing problem as well as sampling of parameters with particle MCMC methods.
