Input Arguments

Kalman filter state vector for constant-velocity motion, specified as a real-valued 2N-element column vector where N is the number of spatial degrees of freedom of motion. For each spatial degree of motion, the state vector takes the form shown in this table.

Spatial DimensionsState Vector Structure
1-D[x;vx]
2-D[x;vx;y;vy]
3-D[x;vx;y;vy;z;vz]

For example, x represents the x-coordinate and vx represents the velocity in the x-direction. If the motion model is 1-D, values along the y and z axes are assumed to be zero. If the motion model is 2-D, values along the z axis are assumed to be zero. Position coordinates are in meters and velocity coordinates are in meters/sec.

Example: [5;.1;0;-.2;-3;.05]

Data Types: single | double

Measurement frame, specified as 'rectangular' or 'spherical'. When the frame is 'rectangular', a measurement consists of the x, y, and z Cartesian coordinates of the tracked object. When specified as 'spherical', a measurement consists of the azimuth, elevation, range, and range rate of the tracked object.

Data Types: char

Sensor position with respect to the global coordinate system, specified as a real-valued 3-by-1 column vector. Units are in meters.

Data Types: double

Sensor velocity with respect to the global coordinate system, specified as a real-valued 3-by-1 column vector. Units are in meters/second.

Data Types: double

Local sensor coordinate axes, specified as a 3-by-3 orthogonal matrix. Each column specifies the direction of the local x-, y-, and z-axes, respectively, with respect to the global coordinate system.

Data Types: double

Measurement parameters, specified as a structure or an array of structures. The fields of the structure are:

FieldDescriptionExample
Frame

Frame used to report measurements, specified as one of these values:

• 'rectangular' — Detections are reported in rectangular coordinates.

• 'spherical' — Detections are reported in spherical coordinates.

'spherical'
OriginPositionPosition offset of the origin of the frame relative to the parent frame, specified as an [x y z] real-valued vector.[0 0 0]
OriginVelocityVelocity offset of the origin of the frame relative to the parent frame, specified as a [vx vy vz] real-valued vector.[0 0 0]
OrientationFrame rotation matrix, specified as a 3-by-3 real-valued orthonormal matrix.[1 0 0; 0 1 0; 0 0 1]
HasAzimuthLogical scalar indicating if azimuth is included in the measurement.1
HasElevationLogical scalar indicating if elevation is included in the measurement. For measurements reported in a rectangular frame, and if HasElevation is false, the reported measurements assume 0 degrees of elevation.1
HasRangeLogical scalar indicating if range is included in the measurement.1
HasVelocityLogical scalar indicating if the reported detections include velocity measurements. For measurements reported in the rectangular frame, if HasVelocity is false, the measurements are reported as [x y z]. If HasVelocity is true, measurements are reported as [x y z vx vy vz].1
IsParentToChildLogical scalar indicating if Orientation performs a frame rotation from the parent coordinate frame to the child coordinate frame. When IsParentToChild is false, then Orientation performs a frame rotation from the child coordinate frame to the parent coordinate frame.0

Azimuth and Elevation Angle Definitions

Define the azimuth and elevation angles used in Sensor Fusion and Tracking Toolbox™.

The azimuth angle of a vector is the angle between the x-axis and its orthogonal projection onto the xy plane. The angle is positive in going from the x axis toward the y axis. Azimuth angles lie between –180 and 180 degrees. The elevation angle is the angle between the vector and its orthogonal projection onto the xy-plane. The angle is positive when going toward the positive z-axis from the xy plane. Extended Capabilities
