Bayesian Estimation and Tracking: A Practical GuideA practical approach to estimating and tracking dynamicsystems in real-worl applications Much of the literature on performing estimation for non-Gaussiansystems is short on practical methodology, while Gaussian methodsoften lack a cohesive derivation. Bayesian Estimation andTracking addresses the gap in the field on both accounts,providing readers with a comprehensive overview of methods forestimating both linear and nonlinear dynamic systems driven byGaussian and non-Gaussian noices. Featuring a unified approach to Bayesian estimation andtracking, the book emphasizes the derivation of all trackingalgorithms within a Bayesian framework and describes effectivenumerical methods for evaluating density-weighted integrals,including linear and nonlinear Kalman filters for Gaussian-weightedintegrals and particle filters for non-Gaussian cases. The authorfirst emphasizes detailed derivations from first principles ofeeach estimation method and goes on to use illustrative anddetailed step-by-step instructions for each method that makescoding of the tracking filter simple and easy to understand. Case studies are employed to showcase applications of thediscussed topics. In addition, the book supplies block diagrams foreach algorithm, allowing readers to develop their own MATLAB®toolbox of estimation methods. Bayesian Estimation and Tracking is an excellent book forcourses on estimation and tracking methods at the graduate level.The book also serves as a valuable reference for researchscientists, mathematicians, and engineers seeking a deeperunderstanding of the topics. |
