MATLAB Adds Sensor Fusion and Tracking Toolbox

MathWorks introduces Sensor Fusion and Tracking Toolbox, which is now available as part of MATLAB Release 2018b. The toolbox provides algorithms and tools to maintain position, orientation, and situational awareness. The toolbox extends MATLAB based workflows to help users develop accurate perception algorithms for autonomous systems.

 

Engineers working on the perception stage of autonomous system development need to fuse inputs from various sensors to estimate the position of objects around these systems. Now, they can use algorithms for localization and tracking, along with reference examples within the toolbox, as a starting point to implement components of airborne, ground-based, shipborne, and underwater surveillance, navigation, and autonomous systems. The toolbox provides a reusable environment that can be shared across developers. It provides capabilities to simulate sensor detections, perform localization, test sensor fusion architectures, and evaluate tracking results.
