—This paper is devoted to the development of a map matching algorithm for a train positioning system. Due to the non-steerable truck design associated with rail vehicles, rail track curvatures are reasonably small. Consequently, track signatures, such as curves, are difficult to identify using low-cost sensors. The algorithm proposed in this work takes full(More)
This letter shows that traditional Newton-Raphson (NR) method cannot achieve zero-convergence in presence of additive noise without adding a multiplicative gain. Furthermore, this gain needs to converge to zero. This article proposes a novel recursive algorithm providing optimal iterative-varying gains associated with the NR method. The development of the(More)
