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 ...

Weight update in particle filters

For particle filtering weight update, often the transitional prior is used for the proposal density, in which case the weight update simplifies to just the likelyhood function. However, in one ...

Alternative to Extended Kalman Filter when prediction function is not differentiable

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

I'm confuse how to use pdf to predict next state in particle filter

How can I make predict state/equation for next state if I have state space $[C_x,C_y,H,W]$ where $C_x,C_y$ is position of centroid object and $H,W$ is height and width of object contour?
