Need help with Kalman Filter

  1. Dec 15, 2008 #1
    Hey everyone,

    I have a system that I know the x,y,z position and the alpha,beta,gamma euler rotation of an object in space at known intervals. I need to use a filter on this data to reduce the error of the measurements, and it would be nice to be able to predict future movement. I understand that the Kalman filter is the way to go about this, but I havn't been able to find a good example, tutorial, etc that makes much sense to a beginner.

    I also need to filter position sensor data that has an x and y component. I will have a position measurement from this sensor at a given time interval as well.

    Can someone give me a direction to go, a suggestion for material to look at, etc? Any help would be greatly appriciated.
