Welcome to Stone Soup’s documentation!

Stone Soup Logo

Stone Soup is a software project to provide the target tracking and state estimation community with a framework for the development and testing of tracking and state estimation algorithms.

As Stone Soup is focused on development and testing of algorithms, and such components may not be the most optimised implementations, instead focusing on being flexible. Its also intended to aid choice of component/algorithms to tackle real world problems.

Stone Soup is currently in beta and under continuing development, where feedback and contributions are welcomed to improve the component interface design and grow the number components available.

Please see the example Stone Soup Notebooks.


To install Stone Soup from PyPI execute:
