Mark Abstract The topic of this thesis is estimation of nonlinear dynamical systems, focusing on the use of methods such as particle filtering and smoothing. There are three areas of contributions: The common theme for all the work presented is the pyParticleEst software framework, which has been developed by the author.
It is a generic software framework to assist in the application of particle methods to new problems, and to make it easy to implement and test new methods on existing problems. The theoretical contributions are extensions to existing methods, specifically the Auxiliary Particle Filter and the More The topic of this thesis is estimation of nonlinear dynamical systems, focusing on the use of methods such as particle filtering and smoothing.
This work was motivated by the desire to have a coherent set of methods and model-classes in the software framework so that all algorithms can be applied to all applicable types of models.
There are three applications of these methods discussed in the thesis.
The first is the modeling of periodic autonomous signals by describing them as the output of a second order system. The second is nonlinear grey-box system identification of a quadruple-tank laboratory process. The third is simultaneous localization and mapping for indoor navigation using ultrasonic range-finders.COMPARISON OF DIFFERENT KALMAN FILTERS FOR APPLICATION TO MOBILE ROBOTICS by Suraj Ravichandran A Thesis Submitted to the Graduate Faculty of George Mason University.

We propose a new algorithm, the manifold particle filter, which uses dual particles directly sampled from the contact manifold to avoid this problem. The algorithm adapts to the probability of contact by dynamically changing the number of dual particles sampled from the manifold.
Chapter 2 Basic Techniques T his chapter explains two techniques which are frequently used throughout this thesis.
First, we will introduce the concept of particle ﬁ lters. A particle ﬁ lter is a recursive Bayesian technique for estimating the state of a dynamic system. We then explain the ideas of grid maps and “mapping with known.
