Kalman-Filter: Einführung in die Zustandsschätzung und ihre by Reiner Marchthaler,Sebastian Dingler

By Reiner Marchthaler,Sebastian Dingler

Dieses Lehrbuch befasst sich leicht verständlich mit der Theorie der Kalman-Filterung. Die Autoren geben damit eine Einführung in Kalman-Filter und deren Anwendung für eingebettete Systeme. Zusätzlich wird anhand konkreter Praxisbeispiele der Kalman-Filterentwurf demonstriert – Teilschritte werden im Buch ausführlich erläutert.
Kalman-Filter sind die erste Wahl, um Störsignale auf den Sensorsignalen zu eliminieren. Dies ist von besonderer Bedeutung, da viele technische Systeme ihre prozessrelevanten Informationen über Sensoren gewinnen. Jeder Messwert eines Sensors weißt jedoch aufgrund verschiedener Ursachen einen Messfehler auf. Würde ein process nur auf foundation dieser ungenauen Sensorinformationen arbeiten, so wären viele Anwendungen, wie zum Beispiel ein Navigationssystem oder autonome arbeitende Systeme, nicht möglich.
Das Buch ist geeignet für interessierte Bachelor- und Master-Studierende der Fachrichtungen Informatik, Maschinenbau, Elektrotechnik und Mechatronik. Ebenso ist das Buch eine Hilfe für Ingenieure und Wissenschaftler, die ein Kalman-Filter z. B. für die Datenfusion oder die Schätzung unbekannter Größen in Echtzeitanwendungen einsetzen möchten.
