Kalman Filter Virtual Lab
Updated 21 Jan 2022
The Kalman Filter virtual laboratory contains interactive exercises that let you study linear and extended Kalman filter design for state estimation of a simple pendulum system. The virtual lab lets you visualize pendulum dynamics using 3D simulations and animations (see below).
The lab solutions are available upon instructor request. If you would like to request solutions, find an issue, or have a suggestion, contact us here.
- Simulate a simple pendulum and visualize its swing motion
- Simulate sensor meaurement and compare measured to actual pendulum response
- Design a Kalman Filter to estimate the angular position of the pendulum
- Design an Extended Kalman Filter to estimate the angular position of the nonlinear pendulum system
To get started with the Kalman filter virtual lab, double-click the project.prj file inside MATLAB®. This will set up the parameters required for simulating the pendulum system and open up a live script, where you'll find the instructions for running the interactive exercises to complete the virtual lab.
- Kalman Filter Tech Talks help students gain insights into why engineers use Kalman filters, how Kalman filter state estimation algorithm works and the different types of optimal state estimators such as extended, unscented Kalman filters and particle filters.
