This year celebrates the 50th anniversary of the paper by Rudolf E. Kálmán that conferred upon the world, the remarkable idea of a Kalman Filter. In statistics and control theory, Kalman filtering, also known as linear quadratic estimation (LQE), is an algorithm that uses a series of measurements observed over time, containing statistical noise and other inaccuracies, producing estimates of unknown variables that tend to be more accurate than those based on a single measurement alone. This is achieved by estimating a joint probability distribution over the variables for each timeframe. The Kalman filter is ideally applied to understand the behaviour of systems that change or evolve over time. It is useful in situations where we might have uncertain information (i.e.
