Data scientist Mark Rintoul led a team of Sandia Labs researchers that built a code for automated monitoring of motion and trajectories through the Pattern Analytics to Support High-Performance Exploitation and Reasoning initiative, the laboratory said Nov. 17.
Tracktable will work to analyze movements of people, ships or aircraft, according to Sandia Labs.
A research team led by Sandia computer scientist Randy Brost has created a software system that works to convert pixels of remotely sensed images to graphical models.
GeoGraphy is designed to employ nodes and edges in graphs to analyze the relationship between multiple objects or distance and time.
The researchers are looking to integrate motion and trajectories into the GeoGraphy system.
“The purpose of these codes “” GeoGraphy and Tracktable “” is to assist humans, not to replace them or to automatically do their jobs,” Brost said, adding he believes the tools can help people “be more effective in dealing with large sets of evidence.”
The PANTHER initiative is being funded through the Laboratory Directed Research & Development program.
