How to achieve tracking using trackerJPDA with the position matrix below?

14 views (last 30 days)
Hi, I am using the position matrix below and the codes. However, it does not see the target starting from 16000 and continues as 15500,15000,14500 etc. Where is my mistake?
position_matrix = [

Your issue appears to be related to the values in your position matrix and how the detections are being processed. Specifically, the targets starting from 16000 and continuing to 15500, 15000, 14500, etc., might not be correctly detected due to how the objectDetection function is used or due to the limits set in your plot.
Here are a few suggestions to troubleshoot and potentially fix the issue,
  • Ensure the matrix values are correct and are within the expected range. Your position matrix seems to have valid values, but verify if there are any unintended zeroes or anomalies.
  • Verify that the plot limits are set correctly. Your code has XLimits and YLimits set to [0 16000]. If your targets go beyond this range, they will not be displayed.
  • Ensure that the detections are being created correctly. The function objectDetection(time(tgt), [x; x*0.8; 0]) might not be generating the expected values. You might want to log these values to ensure they are within the plot limits.
  • Check if the detections array is properly initialized and reset. The line detections = {}; correctly resets it after each target, but ensure there are no logical errors causing it to miss detections.
Here is a refined version of your code with additional comments for clarity:

This script includes,
  • Correct initialization and reset of the detections array.
  • Proper assignment of objectDetection with checks.
If the issue persists, ensure the targets are within the plot limits and correctly detected in each loop iteration.
