Multitarget tracking problems arise in many real-world applications. The performance of the utilized algorithm strongly depends both on how the data association problem is handled and on the suitability of the motion models employed. Especially the motion models can be hard to validate. Previously, we have proposed to use multitarget tracking to improve optical belt sorters. In this paper, we evaluate both the suitability of our model and the tracking and then of our entire system incorporating the image processing component via the use of highly realistic numerical simulations. We first assess the model using noise-free measurements generated by the simulation and then evaluate the entire system by using synthetically generated image data. © 2016 IEEE.
