## 04-18 Shifting the Mean

• 0:00 - 0:05
In Kalman filters we iterate measurement and motion.
• 0:05 - 0:08
This is often called a "measurement update,"
• 0:08 - 0:10
and this is often called "prediction."
• 0:10 - 0:17
In this update we'll use Bayes rule, which is nothing else but a product or a multiplication.
• 0:17 - 0:24
In this update we'll use total probability, which is a convolution,
• 0:24 - 0:27
• 0:27 - 0:35
Let's talk first about the measurement cycle and then the prediction cycle,
• 0:35 - 0:44
using our great, great, great Gaussians for implementing those steps.
• 0:44 - 0:47
Suppose you're localizing another vehicle,
• 0:47 - 0:50
and you have a prior distribution that looks as follows.
• 0:50 - 0:55
It's a very wide Gaussian with the mean over here.
• 0:55 - 0:58
Now, say we get a measurement that tells us something about
• 0:58 - 1:03
the localization of the vehicle, and it comes in like this.
• 1:03 - 1:07
It has a mean over here called "mu,"
• 1:07 - 1:11
and this example has a much smaller covariance for the measurement.
• 1:11 - 1:16
This is an example where in our prior we were fairly uncertain about a location,
• 1:16 - 1:21
but the measurement told us quite a bit as to where the vehicle is.
• 1:21 - 1:23
Here's a quiz for you.
• 1:23 - 1:36
Will the new mean of the subsequent Gaussian be over here, over here, or over here?
• 1:36 -
Check one of these three boxes.
