Comparisons of PHD Filter and CPHD Filter for Space Object Tracking
The Probability Hypothesis Density (PHD) filter and the Cardinalized PHD (CPHD) filter are two computationally tractable approximate Bayesian multiobject filters within the Finite Set Statistics framework. The PHD filter estimates the intensity function; the CPHD filter estimates the intensity function and the conditional distribution of the number of objects. The two filters are compared in an example of tracking three space objects, where the CPHD filter is shown to estimate the number of objects as well as the intensity function more accurately.
