Object tracking is important in autonomous robotics, military applications, financial time-series forecasting, and mobile systems. In order to correctly track through clutter, algorithms which predict the next value in a time series are essential. The competence of standard machine learning techniques to create bearing prediction estimates was examined. The results show that the classification based algorithms produce more accurate estimates than the state-of-the-art statistical models. Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) and K-Nearest Neighbour were used, demonstrating that this technique is not specific to a single classifier.
