Abstract
The algorithms developed on this effort will support a distributed sensor architecture in which a collection of sensors with typically disjoint field-of-views (FOVs), though some may have overlapping FOVs, are used to keep track of objects that move around within the sensor network. As the tracked objects pass from one sensor's FOV to another, communication between the sensor nodes enables continuous tracking of the objects. The sensor nodes alert one another when the tracked objects might enter another sensor's FOV. Additionally, the sensor nodes pass track information which allows a sensors to identify objects that come within its FOV as the same object that was in another sensor's FOV. Such a system has wide applicability to a variety of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance and Security missions: for example, monitoring surface vessels for terrorist activity or drug-trafficking or for video surveillance systems that must track objects in and out of different regions.
