The performance of conventional acoustic source localization and tracking system reduces significantly when reverberation, noise, and acoustic interference are present. In this paper, a robust speaker tracking algorithm for an enclosed environment in the presence of interference and noise is proposed. We exploit the harmonic structure which is a distinctive(More)
State of charge (SOC) estimation is an essential part of battery management system. Dynamic and closed loop model-based methods such as extended Kalman filter (EKF) have been extensively used in SOC estimation. However, the EKF suffers from drawbacks such as requiring Jacobian matrix derivation and linearization accuracy. In this paper, a new SOC estimation(More)
We address the problem of localizing and tracking alternating (moving or stationary) talkers using microphone arrays in a room environment. One of the main challenges is the frequent (and possibly abrupt) change of talker positions, which requires the algorithm to capture the active talker rapidly. In addition, the presence of interference, background(More)
Spacecraft formation flying navigation continues to receive a great deal of interest. The research presented in this dissertation focuses on developing methods for estimating spacecraft absolute and relative positions, assuming measurements of only relative positions using wireless sensors. The implementation of the extended Kalman filter to the spacecraft(More)
