The uncertainty team is tasked with achieving things that are unpredictable and very challenging. Of course, things which are certain and easily understood will be handled by other [[Teams]].
We're doing research and implementation of probabilistic algorithms. In particular we are interested in all sorts of filtering: kalman unscented, kalman extended, sigma point kalman, particle and others. These are useful in estimating the position and orientation of a rocket given a diverse array of sensor inputs, all of which are incorrect in their own way. Without such estimation and eventually feeding back this information to our system, controlling a rocket's trajectory can be hugely difficult.
Please join our mailing list, or better yet stop by one of our meetings, we'd love to have your help!

Tim wants to think about what the consequences of not including the gains in the error model. The gains typically drift slowly whereas bias&#39; change quickly. Talked with Bart, he mentioned that he would like to do plain old kalman filtering first and then just move on to using one of the Bayesian Filtering Libraries, either BFL or Bayes++ to develop a true particle filter.

Put another way, we're doing research and implementation of probabilistic algorithms. These are useful, for instance, to estimate the position and orientation of the rocket given a diverse array of sensor inputs, all of which are wrong in different ways. Without such estimation, controlling the rocket's trajectory is really, really, really hard.

We want to have a process that updates estimates for the error model as we propagate the filter.
