Sensor Fusion and Object Tracking with MATLAB

Learn how to make an estimation of where the object will be at the next time step based on some assumed physical motion model of the object using MATLAB

Course
Highlights

An autonomous system primarily consists of four main components: perception, localization, planning and control. Sensor Fusion and Tracking toolboxTM focuses on perception, which starts with a fused position estimation of object from previous time step, then make an estimation of where the object will be at the next time step based on some assumed physical motion model of the object. Some of the common problems that are tackled in sensor fusion and tracking systems such as “How can I design trackers and localization algorithm?”.

Attend our 1-day course that provides hands-on experience with developing and testing localization and tracking algorithms. Examples and exercises demonstrate the use of appropriate MATLAB® and Sensor Fusion and Tracking Toolbox™ functionality. Topics include:

  • Localization for orientation and position
  • Scene generation and sensor detection import
  • Filters and motion models
  • Data association
  • Multi-object trackers
