constaccjac

Jacobian for constant-acceleration motion

Syntax

jacobian = constaccjac(state)
jacobian = constaccjac(state,dt)

Description

example

jacobian = constaccjac(state) returns the updated Jacobian , jacobian, for a constant-acceleration Kalman filter motion model. The step time is one second. The state argument specifies the current state of the filter.

example

jacobian = constaccjac(state,dt) also specifies the time step, dt.

Compute the state Jacobian for two-dimensional constant-acceleration motion.

Define an initial state and compute the state Jacobian for a one second update time.

state = [1,1,1,2,1,0];
jacobian = constaccjac(state)
jacobian = 6×6

Compute the state Jacobian for two-dimensional constant-acceleration motion. Set the step time to 0.5 seconds.

state = [1,1,1,2,1,0].';
jacobian = constaccjac(state,0.5)
jacobian = 6×6

Input Arguments

collapse all

Kalman filter state vector for constant-acceleration motion, specified as a real-valued 3N-element vector. N is the number of spatial degrees of freedom of motion. For each spatial degree of motion, the state vector takes the form shown in this table.

Spatial DimensionsState Vector Structure
1-D[x;vx;ax]
2-D[x;vx;ax;y;vy;ay]
3-D[x;vx;ax;y;vy;ay;z;vz;az]

For example, x represents the x-coordinate, vx represents the velocity in the x-direction, and ax represents the acceleration in the x-direction. If the motion model is in one-dimensional space, the y- and z-axes are assumed to be zero. If the motion model is in two-dimensional space, values along the z-axis are assumed to be zero. Position coordinates are in meters. Velocity coordinates are in meters/second. Acceleration coordinates are in meters/second2.

Example: [5;0.1;0.01;0;-0.2;-0.01;-3;0.05;0]

Data Types: double

Time step interval of filter, specified as a positive scalar. Time units are in seconds.

Example: 0.5

Data Types: single | double

Output Arguments

collapse all

Constant-acceleration motion Jacobian, returned as a real-valued 3N-by-3N matrix.

Algorithms

For a two-dimensional constant-acceleration process, the Jacobian matrix after a time step, T, is block diagonal:

[1T12T200001T0000010000001T12T200001T000001]

The block for each spatial dimension has this form:

[1T12T201T001]

For each additional spatial dimension, add an identical block.
