Study on Velocity Constrained Particle Filters in Passive Tracking Applications
To improve the poor performance of the maneuvering target tracking, Particle Filters (PF) and velocity constrained Particle Filters (VCPF) are introduced to track the maneuvering target. According to the prior information, outrange particles are discarded during prediction step, and the distribution and the weight of particles are adjusted. Simulation result shows that VCPF can track the maneuvering target stablely. Furthermore, the convergence rate and track accuracy of the algorithm can also be effectively improved.
