    Create a track using detections in a radarTracker.

    Delete the first track.

    deleted1 = deleteTrack(tracker,1)
    deleted1 = logical

    Uncomment the following to delete a nonexistent track. A warning will be issued.

    % deleted2 = deleteTrack(tracker,2)

    Input Arguments

    collapse all

    Radar tracker, specified as a radarTracker object.

    Track identifier, specified as a positive integer.

    Example: 21

    Output Arguments

    collapse all

    Indicate if the track was successfully deleted or not, returned as 1 or 0. If the track specified by the trackID input existed and was successfully deleted, it returns as 1. If the track did not exist, a warning is issued and it returns as 0.
