- class stonesoup.initiator.simple.SimpleMeasurementInitiator(prior_state: GaussianState, measurement_model: MeasurementModel, skip_non_reversible: bool = False, diag_load: float = 0.0)[source]¶
Bases:
stonesoup.initiator.base.GaussianInitiator
Initiator that maps measurement space to state space
Works for both linear and non-linear co-ordinate input
This initiator utilises the
MeasurementModel
matrix to convertDetection
state vector and model covariance into state space.Utilises the ReversibleModel inverse function to convert non-linear spherical co-ordinates into Cartesian x/y co-ordinates for use in predictions and mapping.
This then replaces mapped values in the
prior_state
to form the initialGaussianState
of theTrack
.The diagonal loading value is used to try to ensure that the estimated covariance matrix is positive definite, especially for subsequent Cholesky decompositions.
- Parameters
prior_state (
GaussianState
) – Prior state informationmeasurement_model (
MeasurementModel
) – Measurement modelskip_non_reversible (

- class stonesoup.initiator.simple.MultiMeasurementInitiator(prior_state: GaussianState, measurement_model: MeasurementModel, deleter: Deleter, data_associator: DataAssociator, updater: Updater, min_points: int = 2, updates_only: bool = True, initiator: Initiator = None)[source]¶
Bases:
stonesoup.initiator.base.GaussianInitiator
Multi-measurement initiator.
Utilises features of the tracker to initiate and hold tracks temporarily within the initiator itself, releasing them to the tracker once there are multiple detections associated with them enough to determine that they are ‘sure’ tracks.
Utilises simple initiator to initiate tracks to hold -> prevents code duplication.
Solves issue of short-lived single detection tracks being initiated only to then be removed shortly after. Does cause slight delay in initiation to tracker.

Wrappers¶
- class stonesoup.initiator.wrapper.StatesLengthLimiter(initiator: Initiator, max_length: int)[source]¶
Bases:
stonesoup.initiator.base.Initiator
Wrapper that defines the length of track history stored in memory
By default Stone Soup stores the track history for all tracks in memory. If running Stone Soup on very large data your application may run out of memory and the process terminated - often by the operating system.
This wrapper converts the states space list to a collections.deque data type with the maximum length specified.
from stonesoup.initiator.wrapper import StatesLengthLimiter initiator = StatesLengthLimiter(<initiator model>, max_length)
- Parameters
initiator (
Initiator
) – Stone Soup Initiatormax_length (
int
) – Length of track history to be stored in memory

- initiate(*args, **kwargs)[source]¶
Generate tracks from detections.
- Parameters
