Examples

Examine the assignments and errors for a system tracking two targets.

First, load the stored track data.

load trackmetricex tracklog truthlog

Create objects to analyze assignment and error metrics.

tam = trackAssignmentMetrics;
tem = trackErrorMetrics;

Create the output variables.

posRMSE = zeros(numel(tracklog),1);
velRMSE = zeros(numel(tracklog),1);
posANEES = zeros(numel(tracklog),1);
velANEES = zeros(numel(tracklog),1);

Loop over all tracks to:

  • Extract the tracks and ground truth at the i th tracker update.

  • Analyze and retrieve the current track-to-truth assignment.

  • Analyze instantaneous error metrics over all tracks and truths.

for i=1:numel(tracklog)
    tracks = tracklog{i};
    truths = truthlog{i};
    [trackAM,truthAM] = tam(tracks, truths);
    [trackIDs,truthIDs] = currentAssignment(tam);
    [posRMSE(i),velRMSE(i),posANEES(i),velANEES(i)] = ...
        tem(tracks,trackIDs,truths,truthIDs);
end

Input Arguments

Error metrics object, specified as a trackErrorMetrics System object™.

Output Arguments

Truth error metrics, returned as a table.

  • When you set the ErrorFunctionFormat property of the input error metrics object to 'built-in', the table columns depend on the setting of the MotionModel property.

    Motion ModelTable Columns
    'constvel'posRMSE, velRMSE, posANEES, velANEES
    'constacc'posRMSE, velRMSE, accRMSE, posANEES, velANEES, accANEES
    'constturn'posRMSE, velRMSE, yawRateRMSE, posANEES, velANEES, yawRateANEES

    RMSE and ANEES denote root mean squared error and average normalized estimation error squared of a truth trajectory for the entire tracking scenario time history. Since a truth trajectory can associate with multiple tracks at a time step, the calculation of cumulative RMSE and ANEES values is each separated into two steps. For example, in the first step of the position RMSE value calculation, the function first calculates the RMSE value at a given time step t as:

    St=k=1KtΔpt,k2

    where Kt is the number of tracks associated with the truth at time step t, and

    Δpt,k=ptrack,t,kptruth,t

    is the position difference between the position of kth associated track and the position of the truth at time step t. In the second step, the St values of all the time steps (t = 1,2,…,N) are summed and averaged over the total number of associated tracks (denoted by R) to obtained the cumulative position RMSE value as:

    posRMSE=1t=1NKt t=1Nk=1KtΔpt,k2

    where the total number of associated tracks, R, is given by

    R=t=1NKt.

    The cumulative RMSE values for other states (vel, pos, acc, and yawRate) are defined similarly.

    The calculation of the cumulative position ANEES value, posANEES, for a truth trajectory can also be separated into two steps. In the first step, the function calculates the ANEES value at a given time step t as:

    Qt=k=1KtΔpt,kTCp,t,k1Δpt,k

    where Cp,t,k is the covariance corresponding to the position of the kth associated track at time step t. In the second step, the Qt values for all the time steps (t = 1,2,…,N) are summed and averaged over the total number of associated tracks (denoted by R) to obtained the cumulative position ANEES value as:

    posANEES=1t=1NKtt=1Nk=1KtΔpt,kTCp,t,k1Δpt,k

    The cumulative ANEES values for other states (vel, pos, acc, and yawRate) are defined similarly.

  • When you set the ErrorFunctionFormat property to 'custom', the table contains the arithmetically averaged values of the custom metrics output from the error function.
