This paper addresses a novel method for vehicle tracking using an extended Kalman filter and measurements of road surface vibrations from a single accelerometer. First, a measurement model for vibrations caused by vehicular road traffic is developed. Then the identifiability of the involved parameters is analyzed. Finally, the measurement model is combined with a constant speed motion model and the Kalman filter is derived. Simulation and measurement results indicate that the approach is… CONTINUE READING
