The linear discrete Kalman filter was analyzed using a frequency-domain approach. Process and measurement noise covariances are shown to be critical design parameters which, together with the assumed prior state and covariance estimates, completely determine the main schedule of the linear Kalman filter. Several relevant design techniques are illustrated and discussed. The concepts of smoothing and sharpening are demonstrated. Extensions to adaptive, nonlinear, and non-parametric filtering are briefly discussed, as are applications to inventory management, estimation of time-varying mean functions, and multiple regression.

Johnson, Andrew Peter (Cambridge, Massachusetts; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005-06);One of the reasons linear motors, a technology nearly a century old, have not been adopted for a large number of linear motion applications is that they have historically had poor efficiencies. This has restricted the ...
