The approach addresses the problem of fusing range-based and sourceless localization estimates under conditions of varying observability in the range-based sub-system. The proposed localization approach uses a mixture of Single-Hypothesis-Tracking (e.g. Kalman filter) and Multi-Hypothesis-Tracking (MHT) (e.g. Particle Filters) Bayesian filtering to improve tracking accuracy under conditions of varying observability. Under conditions of sufficient (or no) range measurements a single hypothesis approach is used. Under the condition of insufficient range measurements (i.e, 1 or 2 ranges), MHT is used, since it more accurately models the distribution of real error in the estimated positions by means of Gaussian mixtures rather that a single Gaussian. The results show up to 10% improvement in 3D position estimation as compared to Single-Constraint-at-a-Time (SCAAT) approach and upto 24% improvement compared to an Extended Kalman Filter approach for intermittent 3 second partial range occlusions when tracking human arm movements.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IEEE||Subject LCSH:||Bayesian statistical decision theory
