class stonesoup.models.measurement.nonlinear.CartesianToElevationBearingRangeRate(ndim_state, mapping, noise_covar, rotation_offset=None, translation_offset=None, velocity_mapping=(1, 3, 5), velocity=None)[source]

This is a class implementation of a time-invariant measurement model, where measurements are assumed to be received in the form of elevation ($$\theta$$), bearing ($$\phi$$), range ($$r$$) and range-rate ($$\dot{r}$$), with Gaussian noise in each dimension.

The model is described by the following equations:

$\vec{y}_t = h(\vec{x}_t, \vec{v}_t)$

where:

• $$\vec{y}_t$$ is a measurement vector of the form:

$\begin{split}\vec{y}_t = \begin{bmatrix} \theta \\ \phi \\ r \\ \dot{r} \end{bmatrix}\end{split}$
• $$h$$ is a non-linear model function of the form:

$\begin{split}h(\vec{x}_t,\vec{v}_t) = \begin{bmatrix} asin(\mathcal{z}/\sqrt{\mathcal{x}^2 + \mathcal{y}^2 +\mathcal{z}^2}) \\ atan2(\mathcal{y},\mathcal{x}) \\ \sqrt{\mathcal{x}^2 + \mathcal{y}^2 + \mathcal{z}^2} \\ (x\dot{x} + y\dot{y} + z\dot{z})/\sqrt{x^2 + y^2 + z^2} \end{bmatrix} + \vec{v}_t\end{split}$
• $$\vec{v}_t$$ is Gaussian distributed with covariance $$R$$, i.e.:

$\vec{v}_t \sim \mathcal{N}(0,R)$
$\begin{split}R = \begin{bmatrix} \sigma_{\theta}^2 & 0 & 0 & 0\\ 0 & \sigma_{\phi}^2 & 0 & 0\\ 0 & 0 & \sigma_{r}^2 & 0\\ 0 & 0 & 0 & \sigma_{\dot{r}}^2 \end{bmatrix}\end{split}$

The mapping property of the model is a 3 element vector, whose first (i.e. mapping[0]), second (i.e. mapping[1]) and third (i.e. mapping[2]) elements contain the state index of the $$x$$, $$y$$ and $$z$$ coordinates, respectively.

Note

This class implementation assuming at 3D cartesian space, it therefore expects a 6D state space.

This is a class implementation of a time-invariant measurement model, where measurements are assumed to be in the form of elevation ($$\theta$$), bearing ($$\phi$$), range ($$r$$) and range-rate ($$\dot{r}$$), with Gaussian noise in each dimension and the range and range-rate are binned based on the range resolution and range-rate resolution respectively.

The model is described by the following equations:

$\vec{y}_t = h(\vec{x}_t, \vec{v}_t)$

where:

• $$\vec{y}_t$$ is a measurement vector of the form:

$\begin{split}\vec{y}_t = \begin{bmatrix} \theta \\ \phi \\ r \\ \dot{r} \end{bmatrix}\end{split}$
• $$h$$ is a non-linear model function of the form:

$\begin{split}h(\vec{x}_t,\vec{v}_t) = \begin{bmatrix} \textrm{asin}(\mathcal{z}/\sqrt{\mathcal{x}^2 + \mathcal{y}^2 +\mathcal{z}^2}) \\ \textrm{atan2}(\mathcal{y},\mathcal{x}) \\ \sqrt{\mathcal{x}^2 + \mathcal{y}^2 + \mathcal{z}^2} \\ (x\dot{x} + y\dot{y} + z\dot{z})/\sqrt{x^2 + y^2 + z^2} \end{bmatrix} + \vec{v}_t\end{split}$
• $$\vec{v}_t$$ is Gaussian distributed with covariance $$R$$, i.e.:

$\vec{v}_t \sim \mathcal{N}(0,R)$
$\begin{split}R = \begin{bmatrix} \sigma_{\theta}^2 & 0 & 0 & 0\\ 0 & \sigma_{\phi}^2 & 0 & 0\\ 0 & 0 & \sigma_{r}^2 & 0\\ 0 & 0 & 0 & \sigma_{\dot{r}}^2 \end{bmatrix}\end{split}$

The covariances for radar are determined by different factors. The angle error is affected by the radar beam width. Range error is affected by the SNR and pulse bandwidth. The error for the range rate is dependent on the dwell time. The range and range rate are binned to the centre of the cell using

$x = \textrm{floor}(x/\Delta x)*\Delta x + \frac{\Delta x}{2}$

The mapping property of the model is a 3 element vector, whose first (i.e. mapping[0]), second (i.e. mapping[1]) and third (i.e. mapping[2]) elements contain the state index of the $$x$$, $$y$$ and $$z$$ coordinates, respectively.
