The concept of a miss-distance, or error, between a reference quantity and its estimated/controlled value, plays a fundamental role in any filtering/control problem. Yet there is no satisfactory notion of a miss-distance in the well-established field of multi-object filtering. In this paper, we outline the inconsistencies of existing metrics in the context of multi-object miss-distances for performance evaluation. We then propose a new mathematically and intuitively consistent metric that addresses the drawbacks of current multi-object performance evaluation metrics.
