Abstract: The Kalman filter is widely used in many different fields. Many practical applications and theoretical results show that the Kalman filter is very sensitive to outliers in a measurement process. In this paper some reasons why the Kalman Filter is sensitive to outliers are analyzed and a series of outlier-tolerant algorithms are designed to be used as substitutes of the Kalman Filter. These outlier-tolerant filters are highly capable of preventing adverse effects from outliers similar with the Kalman Filter in complexity degree and very outlier-tolerant in the case there are some outliers arisen in sampling data set of linear stochastic systems. Simulation results show that these modified algorithms are safe and applicable.
