The Performance Study of Positioning and Tracking in Dynamic Model

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 246)


In the process of maneuvering target tracking, there has the phenomenon of non-linear and linear model estimation. In order to deal with this problem, this paper studies the dynamic positioning and tracking algorithm based on EKF (Extended Kalman Filter), which adopts Singer model in y direction and Uniform motion model in x direction. The simulation results show that positioning result has a precision of 15 m, the EKF method can be used effectively to restrain errors and get high precision.
