Extended Kalman Filter Explained with Python Code

In the following code, I have implemented an Extended Kalman Filter for modeling the movement of a car with constant turn rate and velocity. The code is mainly based on this work (I did some bug fixing and some adaptation such that the code runs similar to the Kalman filter that I have earlier implemented).

Parcticle Filter Explained With Python Code From Scratch

In the following code I have implemented a localization algorithm based on particle filter.

I have used conda to run my code, you can run the following for installation of dependencies:

and the code:
