Tracking multiple objects in indoor environments has various applications such as patient monitoring and inventory tracking. In this thesis, the use of Gaussian mixture probability hypothesis density (GM-PHD) filters is investigated for multiple person tracking via ultra-wideband (UWB) radar sensors in an indoor environment. An experimental setup consisting of a network of UWB radar sensors and a high-speed computer is designed and a new detection algorithm is proposed. The results of this experimental proof-of-concept study show that it is possible to accurately track multiple targets using a UWB radar sensor network in indoor environments based on the proposed approach.
