Abstract: 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…
