The cardinality balanced multi-target multi-Bernoulli (CBMeMBer) filter has emerged as a promising tool for tracking a time-varying number of targets. However, the standard CBMeMBer filter may perform poorly when measurements are coupled with sensor biases. This paper extends the CBMeMBer filter for simultaneous target tracking and sensor biases estimation by introducing the sensor translational biases into the multi-Bernoulli distribution. In the extended CBMeMBer filter, the biases are modeled as the first order Gauss-Markov process and assumed to be uncorrelated with target states. Furthermore, the sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) method is adopted to handle the non-linearity and the non-Gaussian conditions. Simulations are carried out to examine the performance of the proposed filter.
