Kalman Filter: An Elementary Approach
This chapter is devoted to a most elementary introduction to the Kalman filtering algorithm. By assuming invertibility of certain matrices, the Kalman filtering “prediction-correction” algorithm will be derived based on the optimality criterion of least-squares unbiased estimation of the state vector with the optimal weight, using all available data information. The filtering algorithm is first obtained for a system with no deterministic (control) input. By superimposing the deterministic solution, we then arrive at the general Kalman filtering algorithm.
