  • Presents a hands-on engineering approach to filtering algorithms and their implementation
  • Covers a new generation of particle filters, which are applicable to a much wider class of signal processing applications
  • Includes sensor control for particle filters
  • Provides information on a number of interesting and relevant applications, which illustrate theoretical concepts and demonstrate the performance of developed particle filters
“Particle Filters for Random Set Models” presents coverage of state estimation of stochastic dynamic systems from noisy measurements, specifically sequential Bayesian estimation and nonlinear or stochastic filtering. The class of solutions presented in this book is based  on the Monte Carlo statistical method. The resulting  algorithms, known as particle filters, in the last decade have become one of the essential tools for stochastic filtering, with applications ranging from  navigation and autonomous vehicles to bio-informatics and finance.

While particle filters have been around for more than a decade, the recent theoretical developments of sequential Bayesian estimation in the framework of random set theory have provided new opportunities which are not widely known and are covered in this book. These recent developments have dramatically widened the scope of applications, from single to multiple appearing/disappearing objects, from precise to imprecise measurements and measurement models.

This book is ideal for graduate students, researchers, scientists and engineers interested in Bayesian estimation.
