class filterpy.gh.GHFilterOrder(x0, dt, order, g, h=None, k=None)[source]

A g-h filter of aspecified order 0, 1, or 2.

Strictly speaking, the g-h filter is order 1, and the 2nd order filter is called the g-h-k filter. I’m not aware of any filter name that encompasses orders 0, 1, and 2 under one name, or I would use it.

Parameters: x0 : 1D np.array or scalar Initial value for the filter state. Each value can be a scalar or a np.array. You can use a scalar for x0. If order > 0, then 0.0 is assumed for the higher order terms. x is the value being tracked x is the first derivative (for order 1 and 2 filters) x is the second derivative (for order 2 filters) dt : scalar timestep order : int order of the filter. Defines the order of the system 0 - assumes system of form x = a_0 + a_1*t 1 - assumes system of form x = a_0 +a_1*t + a_2*t^2 2 - assumes system of form x = a_0 +a_1*t + a_2*t^2 + a_3*t^3 g : float filter g gain parameter. h : float, optional filter h gain parameter, order 1 and 2 only k : float, optional filter k gain parameter, order 2 only Atrributes ——- x : np.array State of the filter. x is the value being tracked x is the derivative of x (order 1 and 2 only) x is the 2nd derivative of x (order 2 only) This is always an np.array, even for order 0 where you can initialize x0 with a scalar. y : np.array Residual - difference between the measurement and the prediction dt : scalar timestep order : int order of the filter. Defines the order of the system 0 - assumes system of form x = a_0 + a_1*t 1 - assumes system of form x = a_0 +a_1*t + a_2*t^2 2 - assumes system of form x = a_0 +a_1*t + a_2*t^2 + a_3*t^3 g : float filter g gain parameter. h : float filter h gain parameter, order 1 and 2 only k : float filter k gain parameter, order 2 only z : 1D np.array or scalar measurement passed into update()
__init__(x0, dt, order, g, h=None, k=None)[source]

Creates a g-h filter of order 0, 1, or 2.

update(z, g=None, h=None, k=None)[source]

Update the filter with measurement z. z must be the same type or treatable as the same type as self.x.
