Hi, I am trying to implement an unscented kalman filter, as described here: http://cslu.cse.ogi.edu/nsel/ukf/node6.html My problem is with equation 18 - What does the multiplication mean? As far as I understand, the first (Yi - y^) is a row vector, and the second one is a column vector, therefore this is a dot product. But then the result of the expression inside the sigma is a scalar, and ...

Oddball question. Or maybe just a plea for comments. I'm kind of getting painted into a corner, and the color of the paint is pink. It's looking like I need to estimate pink noise with a Kalman filter. Anyone done anything remotely like this? Know of anyone who has? Did they survive? The method that I know of for simulating pink noise involves running white noise through a fil...

Hinfinity filtering is often mentioned by the readers of this group. For sure, it has theortic advantages over the kalman filter under certain conditions. Now I encounter the problem of tuning the weighting matrices and I wonder if you have any cooking recipes, rules of thumb or references to help. A good startoff for me is trying the covariance matrices of the corresponding kalman filter for...

hi folks, I need sum help regarding multirate systems. I am currently working on a project where we r developing a Transfer Function model for Kalman Filter (Actually EKF). We have developed a Kalman Filter for Avionics System of an autopilot.

hi there i working on an object tracking project by kalman filter, assume that there is a moving object, as i studied before i thought 2-degree model (a*x^2+b*x+c) is useful but in simulation result i found our moving is not with constant acceleration all the time. i want to know is there any better idea for this problem?

Hi all. A couple of weeks ago, I found a transcript of Kalman's original paper from 1960. Browsing quickly through it, I found that it was actually readable, at least with my background in subspace analysis and linear algebra etc. As far as I could tell, Kalman basically described null spaces, signal spaces and manifolds 30 years before such terms became common in the DSP literature. The i...

I am using a fairly standard approach to estimating angular pitch using a KF. It uses both accelerometer and Gyro angle data. Now it estimated the angle fine enough and I implement the steady-state KF. Never tried this before but then put a PID or lag-lead controller on this measurement. I find that the Kalman filter bandwidth is stuff all and severely reduces the bandwidth of my cl

Hi, I'm working on a tracking system able to estimate the position of a walking person moving in a 2D scenario. I only measure the x and y coordinates of the person, and I would like to improve the tracking algorithm using a Kalman Filter in Matlab. My question is: how can I correctly model the real process? For example, I don't understand how to set the process noise covariance matrix Q, si...

Hi everyone, I am doing a thesis about fault detection and isolation. Therefore I am using a nonlinear Kalman filter. The process I consider is a two wheeled mobile robot. The inputs are the angular velocities of the wheels, and the outputs the posture, that means x, y, and angle phi. The model is: x(k+1) = x(k) + 0.5(w1*r1+w2*r2)*cos(phi)*dt y(k+1) = y(k) + 0.5(w1*r1+w2*r2)*sin(phi)*dt ...

Hi folks. Assume you are given som 20,000 - 100,000 points of raw (x,y,z) navigation data as previously logged on some platform, and are asked to clean up the data. My first, naive idea is to use some Kalman filter. So far so good. However, the data might contain glitches (jumps) or other inconsistencies that need to be sorted out before feeding them to the Kalman filter. How would...

Hello... I'm currently working on a project in video surveillance. After performing foreground segmentation, I get blobs + noise (due to light variation etc.). To separate the blobs from the noise, I perform simple operations (such as removing all blobs with area < 500 pixels). I'm left with blobs (humans and ghosts). Now here is my problem, how do I apply kalman filters to track these bl
