Decentralized estimation and control for multisensor systems. (English) Zbl 0966.93007
Boca Raton, FL: CRC Press. 230 p. (1998).
This book is on decentralized estimation and decentralized control in the sense of the LQG control. Nonlinearities are linearized and one uses the extended Kalman filter. Full connectedness is not necessarily required. This is done by using transformations in the (information, state) space. Implementation in the case of a wheeled mobile robot and simulations are included at the end.
There are 127 references and an index.
