Kalman Filter for Dummies

I've been reading about Kalman filter and its application in Tracking.

For those who are finding Kalman Filter tutorials, even the wikipedia page for Kalman Filter highly confusing might just find these links comparatively easy to understand.

These tutorials help to understand the basic idea of Kalman Filter, why it is applied in Vision problems, etc:

  1. Kalman Filter for dummies
  2. Introduction to Kalman Filter (includes basic probability concepts, etc).
  3. A Study of the Kalman Filter applied to Visual Tracking.


  1. Hey, this is a good piece of work u have done....

  2. yes, We can. Live feed video is nothing but series of images. Here is a good example of how it works

    using OpenCV
