Title: Target tracking system

Abstract

Methods and apparatuses for identifying a track for a target are disclosed herein. In a general embodiment, trees for targets are identified. Each tree in the trees includes observations that are connected to each other by branches and each observation has a score. A selected track in a tree is identified within the trees with an observation having a highest score. A group of branches is added to the selected track from other trees other than the tree having the selected track to form the track for a target, enabling reducing processing resources used to identify the track.
