Abstract : "The unscented Kalman filter (UKF) is a promising approach for the state estimation of nonlinear dynamic
systems due to its simple calculation process and superior performance in highly nonlinear systems. However, its
solution will be degraded or even divergent when the system model involves uncertainty. This paper presents an
interacting multiple model (IMM) estimation-based adaptive robust UKF to address this problem. This method
combines the merits of the adaptive fading UKF and robust UKF and discards their demerits to inhibit the disturbance
of system model uncertainty on the filtering solution. An adaptive fading UKF for the case of process model
uncertainty and a robust UKF for the case of measurement model uncertainty are established based on the principle
of innovation orthogonality. Subsequently, an IMM estimation is developed to fuse the adaptive fading UKF and
robust UKF as sub-filters according to the mode probability. The system state estimation is achieved as a probabilistic
weighted sum of the estimation results from the two sub-filters. Simulations, experiments and comparison
analysis validate the efficacy of the proposed method."
