The Estimation Algorithm


The estimation problem is: Find estimates for (x, y) (position) given the bearings. We must search for the ``best'' position for some figure of merit. Two decisions must be made. First, what is the space in which we conduct the search. Second, how to establish a convenient figure of merit to evaluate the estimates of position.
