### Kalman Filter - Optimal Way to Handle “Derived” Measurements?

Ie, if you have as state variables position (p) and velocity (v), and I make low-frequency measurements of p, this also indirectly gives me information about v (since it's the derivative of p). What ...

### Obtain a signal's peak value if it's frequency lies between two bin centers

Please suppose the following: The frequency of a signal's fundamental has been estimated using FFT and some frequency estimation methods and is lying between two bin centers The sampling frequency is ...

### Given Position Measurements, How to Estimate Velocity and Acceleration

This is simple i thought, but my naive approach led to a very noisy result. I have this sample times and positions in a file named t_angle.txt: ...

### How to do prediction using frequency domain data?

Both linear regression and Kalman filtering can be used to estimate and then predict from a time domain sequence of data (given some assumptions about the model behind the data). What methods, if ...

### Filtering RANSAC Estimated Homographies

I am using RANSAC algorithm for homography estimation between pairs of images taken with cameras which do not have any translation between them (pure rotation and change of scale/zoom). It works well ...

### Direct Correlation (DC) Time Delay Estimation: Variance Keeps Decreasing for Increasing SNR?

I'm trying to reproduce the results from this paper "Discrete time techniques for Time Delay Estimation" doi:10.1109/78.193195, for both the correlation and Least Squares. I've generated a random (...

### Sparse Channel Estimation in OFDM System

Compressive sensing methods are used in channel estimation when the channel is thread as sparse where there are zero points in the signal representation. I am in the beginning of the sparse signal ...
Question: Formulating a Maximum likelihood estimator: So, the likelihood will be $p(y;\mathbf{h}) = \frac{1}{{(2 \pi \sigma_\eta^2)}^{T/2}} \exp{(-(y - y_0(t))^2)/ 2\sigma_\eta^2}$. Then, I ...
I hope someone can help me with the following problem: I want to estimate the frequency of a sound file that is composed of a sinusoidal with varying frequency and additive white noise:  x \...
