The recently developed labeled multi-Bernoulli (LMB) filter uses better approximations in its update step, compared to the unlabeled multi-Bernoulli filters, and more importantly, it provides us with not only the estimates for the number of targets and their states, but also with labels for existing tracks. This paper presents a novel sensor-control method to be used for optimal multi-target tracking within the LMB filter. The proposed method uses a task-driven cost function in which both the state estimation errors and cardinality estimation errors are taken into consideration. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed method can successfully guide a mobile sensor in a challenging multi-target tracking scenario.
