Abstract

A foveal sensor employs a small region of high acuity surrounded by a periphery of lesser acuity. This paper describes an approach for managing such a sensor for tracking a single target. This approach seeks to adaptively position the high-acuity region of the sensor to keep it centered on the target. This scheme is incorporated into a Kalman filter, suitably modified to account for the nonlinearity and spatial agility of the sensor. It is evaluated using simulations in a two-dimensional target tracking scenario.
