The cubic root unscented kalman filter to estimate the position and orientation of mobile robot trajectory

Omar Bayasli, Hassen Salhi


In this paper we introduce a Cubic Root Unscented Kalman Filter (CRUKF) compared to the Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) for calculating the covariance cubic matrix and covariance matrix within a sensor fusion algorithm to estimate the measurements of an omnidirectional mobile robot trajectory. We study the fusion of the data obtained by the position and orientation with a good precision to localize the robot in an external medium; we apply the techniques of Kalman Filter (KF) to the estimation of the trajectory. We suppose a movement of mobile robot on a plan in two dimensions. The sensor approach is based on the Cubic Root Unscented Kalman Filter (CRUKF) and too on the standard Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) which are modified to handle measurements from the position and orientation. A real-time implementation is done on a three-wheeled omnidirectional mobile robot, using a dynamic model with trajectories. The algorithm is analyzed and validated with simulations.
