Observability analysis is a very powerful tool for discriminating whether a robot can estimate its own state. However, this method cannot investigate how much of the system is observable. This is a major problem from a state estimation perspective because there is too much noise in real environments. Therefore, although the system (or a mobile robot) is observable, it cannot estimate its own state. To address this problem, we propose an observability analysis method that uses the condition number. Mathematica…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
