    const double log_ML_compat_test_threshold = 0.0
    )

Computes the data-association between the prediction of a set of landmarks and their observations, all of them with covariance matrices - Generic version with prediction full cross-covariances.

Implemented methods include (see TDataAssociation)

  • NN: Nearest-neighbor

  • JCBB: Joint Compatibility Branch & Bound [6]

With both a Mahalanobis-distance or Matching-likelihood metric. For a comparison of both methods, see paper [2]

Parameters:

Z_observations_mean

[IN] An MxO matrix with the M observations, each row containing the observation “mean”.

Y_predictions_mean

[IN] An NxO matrix with the N predictions, each row containing the mean of one prediction.

Y_predictions_cov

[IN] An N*OxN*O matrix with the full covariance matrix of all the N predictions.

results

[OUT] The output data association hypothesis, and other useful information.

method

[IN, optional] The selected method to make the associations.

chi2quantile

[IN, optional] The threshold for considering a match between two close Gaussians for two landmarks, in the range [0,1]. It is used to call mrpt::math::chi2inv

use_kd_tree

[IN, optional] Build a KD-tree to speed-up the evaluation of individual compatibility (IC). It’s perhaps more efficient to disable it for a small number of features. (default=true).

predictions_IDs

[IN, optional] (default:none) An N-vector. If provided, the resulting associations in “results.associations” will not contain prediction indices “i”, but “predictions_IDs[i]”.
