The problem of tracking objects moving in Cartesian space with sensors delivering polar measurements has been under investigation of several researchers for quite some time now. Different proposals for using measurement conversion techniques in combination with a linear Kalman filter have been made. As one possible alternative approach, an (approximate) best linear unbiased estimator (BLUE) has been proposed. In this paper, some of these approaches are reinvestigated by means of a common… CONTINUE READING
