Abstract: This paper considers the problem of detecting and tracking multiple maneuvering targets, which suffers from the intractable inference of high-dimensional latent variables that include target kinematic state, target visibility state, motion mode-model association, and data association. A unified message passing algorithm that combines belief propagation (BP) and mean-field (MF) approximation is proposed for simplifying the intractable inference. By assuming conjugate-exponential priors for target kinematic sta…
