  • This paper deals with distance or level measurements based on ultrasonic time-of-fight estimation. Moving from a past experience concerning the proposal of a method based on discrete extended Kalman filter (DEKF) to overcome some limitations of already available ultrasonic-based techniques, a new digital signal processing method capable of granting further improvements is presented. The method is based on the unscented Kalman filter (UKF), which is a new extension of the Kalman filter theory… CONTINUE READING
