Create Kalman filter for object tracking

`kalmanFilter = configureKalmanFilter(MotionModel,InitialLocation,InitialEstimateError,MotionNoise,MeasurementNoise)`

returns a `kalmanFilter`

= configureKalmanFilter(`MotionModel`

,`InitialLocation`

,`InitialEstimateError`

,`MotionNoise`

,`MeasurementNoise`

)`vision.KalmanFilter`

object
configured to track a physical object. This object moves with constant
velocity or constant acceleration in an *M*-dimensional
Cartesian space. The function determines the number of dimensions, *M*,
from the length of the `InitialLocation`

vector.

This function provides a simple approach for configuring the `vision.KalmanFilter`

object
for tracking a physical object in a Cartesian coordinate system. The
tracked object may move with either constant velocity or constant
acceleration. The statistics are the same along all dimensions. If
you need to configure a Kalman filter with different assumptions,
use the `vision.KalmanFilter`

object
directly.

This function provides a simple approach for configuring the
vision.KalmanFilter object for tracking. The Kalman filter implements
a discrete time, linear State-Space System. The `configureKalmanFilter`

function
sets the `vision.KalmanFilter`

object properties.

The `InitialLocation` property
corresponds to the measurement vector used in the Kalman filter state-space
model. This table relates the measurement vector, M,
to the state-space model for the Kalman filter. | ||
