As you know, there are privacy issues around using Cookie nowadays.

And basically, not using Cookie means that site analytics based on cookie can't be done.

but is there really no way to tracking without Cookie?

As I know, information of page is transmitted to omniture server when the page calls a request. and the cookie will be planted.

I think it's possible to gather information refusing cookie on user end or providing garbage cookie.

Please let me know whether it's right or wrong, and please help me if you know the right answer or solutions.

thank you

It's certainly worth noting that visitors who have disabled cookies on their browser or the visitors' browsers simply do not support persistent cookies often only comprise approximately one to two percent of total visitors. Adobe leverages various technologies to measure visitors to a web site, including persistent cookies, IP addresses, user agent string, or a combination of these. 

Furthermore, our January maintenance release of the JavaScript library (H.25.3 version) included a new cookie called s_fid; a fallback visitor identification method. "This cookie is used to identify a unique visitor if the standard s_vi cookie is unavailable due to third-party cookie restrictions." This has allowed Adobe Analytics data collection to overcome many of these cookie challenges.
