Nonlinear estimation with sparse temporal measurements
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2016-09)
Nonlinear estimators based on the Kalman filter, the extended Kalman filter (EKF) and unscented Kalman filter (UKF) are commonly used in practical application. The Kalman filter is an optimal estimator for linear systems; ...
An information-centric approach to autonomous trajectory planning utilizing optimal control techniques
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2009-09)
This work introduces a new information-centric pseudospectral optimal control based algorithm for autonomous trajectory planning and control of unmanned ground vehicles with real-time information updates. It begins with ...
