Probabilistic velocity estimation for autonomous miniature airships using thermal air flow sensors

Jorg Muller, Oliver Paul, Wolfram Burgard
2012 2012 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation  
We present a probabilistic sensor model that accurately models the uncertainty of the flow sensors and thus allows for robust state estimation using a particle filter.  ...  In this paper, we consider the problem of estimating the velocity of a miniature blimp with lightweight air flow sensors.  ...  The authors would like to thank Jan Peters for valuable suggestions and fruitful discussions. Sensirion AG is gracefully acknowledged for providing flow sensor chips.  ...
