ECE Seminar - State Estimation with Event Sensors: Observability Analysis and Multi-Sensor Fusion

4:00pm - 5:00pm
Room 5583 (lift 27/28), Academic Bldg.

Abstract: This work investigates a state estimation problem for linear time-invariant systems based on polarized measurement information from event sensors. To enable estimator design, a new notion of observability, namely, ε-observability is defined with the precision parameter ε which relates to the worst-case performance of inferring the initial state, based on which a criterion is developed to test the ε-observability of discrete-time linear systems. Utilizing multi-sensor polarity data from event sensors and the implicit information hidden in event-triggering conditions at no-event instants, an iterative event-triggered state estimator is designed to evaluate a set containing all possible values of the state.  Distributed implementation of the estimation algorithm utilizing a two-layer processor network of hierarchy architecture is discussed, and the temporal computational complexity of the algorithm implemented in centralized and distributed ways is analyzed. The efficiency of the proposed event-triggered state estimator is verified by numerical experiments.
