Partial Linear Gaussian Models for Tracking in Image Sequences Using Sequential Monte Carlo Methods
The recent development of Sequential Monte Carlo methods (also called particle filters) has enabled the definition of efficient algorithms for tracking applications in image sequences. The efficiency of these approaches depends on the quality of the state-space exploration, which may be inefficient due to a crude choice of the function used to sample in the associated probability space. A careful study of this issue led us to consider the modeling of the tracked dynamic system with partial linear Gaussian models. Such models are characterized by a non linear dynamic equation, a linear measurement equation and additive Gaussian noises. They allow inferring an analytic expression of the optimal importance function used in the diffusion process of the particle filter, and enable building a relevant approximation of a validation gate. Despite of these potential advantages partial linear Gaussian models have not been investigated. The aim of this paper is therefore to demonstrate that such ...
