Particle Filtering with Propagation Delayed Measurements

This paper investigates the problem of propagation delayed measurements in a particle filtering scenario. Based on implicit constraints specified by target dynamics and physics rules of signal propagation, authors apply the ideas that were first proposed in their previous work to the case of particle filters. Unlike the deterministic sampling based approach called propagation delayed measurement filter (PDMF) in their previous work, the new algorithm proposed here (called as PDM particle filter (PDM-PF)) has the potential to be used with general nonlinear models. This advantage and the estimation results of PDM-PF are illustrated in a challenging target tracking scenario by making comparisons to PDMF along with some other alternative particle filters.
