Adaptive Particle Filter: unknown process Equation

In my design and implementation of a SIR particle Filter, I don't have the state process equation of the actual system, which would have given a very good estimation of the real signal. I was ...

How is a Particle Filter used to Estimate Parameters of a State Transition Function?

In the tutorials on particle filters that I have seen, it seems that the state transition function is already known. This example from Matlab, for example, states the the Plant or State Transition ...

Kalman Filter: Difference between sensor input and control input

I recently saw a matlab sensor fusion example which combined IMU and GPS data for drone localization. What was surprising about it was that the IMU was used to predict future behavior of the system as ...

Equations for particle filter

The particle filter is based on the state and observation model equations $x_{t+1}=f_t(x_t, v_t)$ $y_t=h_t(x_t, u_t)$ The idea is to randomly generate some particles then propagate them through the ...

How Do Particle Filters Get Velocity When Tracking with Pos Measurements

I am new to particle filtering. I can see when particle filters are used with Ensemble Kalman's, the velocity of the states are taken care of by the Kalman. When tracking using particle filters ...

Alternative to Extended Kalman Filter When Prediction Function Is Not Differentiable / Given by a Black Box

I am looking at a tracking problem. It can be modeled similarly to the Extended Kalman Filter: $$ \begin{array}{rcl} \mathbf{x}_k &=& \mathbf{f}(\mathbf{x}_{k-1}, \mathbf{u}_k) + \mathbf{w}_k\\...
