### Rotation of Radar Axis in 3D plane

I'm working on a sensor fusion application. In our vehicle, 4 radars (fixed, non-rotating radars) are placed at 4 corners of the vehicles at 45 degrees with respect to x, y and z-axes of the vehicle. ...

### Relationship between the infinity norm of estimation error and the trace of estimation error covariance matrix in Kalman filter

I am working on designing an interconnected distributed control system. In this system, I need to use Kalman filter because the measurements are noisy. I have two questions: 1 - What is the ...

### What is the original paper using Extended Kalman Filter for joint state and parameter estimation [closed]

The title says it all. I would like to know which was the first paper to apply the Extended Kalman Filter to jointly estimate the state plus some parameter of the system. (by extending the system ...

### Relationship and interpretation of "discrete" and "continuous" covariance matrices in Kalman Filtering

I am quite confused about the interpretations/implementation of the system and measurement noise covariance matrices for the continuous and discrete time Kalman Filter. What I want is to initialize ...

### Why not to calibrate accelerometer in IMU filters?

I have been reading various research papers regarding IMU filters and I came to the question of why do we not need to calibrate the accelerometer values as we do for the gyroscope and magnetometer?

### Can a load be estimated using a Kalman filter?

I have a system with a motor, some masses, damping and springs. One of the masses is loaded with an unknown external force F. I want to estimate the force F using data of the motor (mainly current). ...
