Abstract

Particle filters (PFs) are Bayesian-based estimation algorithms with attractive theoretical properties for addressing a wide range of complex applications that are nonlinear and non-Gaussian. However, they are associated with a huge computational demand that limited their application in most real-time systems. To address this drawback in ...
