### How to understand Kalman gain intuitively?

The Kalman filter algorithm works as follows Initialize $\hat{\textbf{x}}_{0|0}$ and $\textbf{P}_{0|0}$. At each iteration $k=1,\dots,n$ Predict Predicted (a priori) state estimate ...

### Kalman filter in practice

I have read the description of the Kalman filter, but I am not clear on how it comes together in practice. It appears to be primarily targeted at mechanical or electrical systems since it wants linear ...

### Should the input of a Kalman filter always be a signal and its derivative?

I always see the Kalman filter used with such input data. For example, the inputs are commonly a position and the correspondent velocity: $$(x, \dfrac{dx}{dt})$$ In my case, I only have 2D ...
