Abstract: In this letter, we consider the robust finite-horizon filtering problem for a class of discrete time-varying systems with missing measurements and norm-bounded parameter uncertainties. The missing measurements are described by a binary switching sequence satisfying a conditional probability distribution. An upper bound for the state estimation error variance is first derived for all possible missing observations and all admissible parameter uncertainties. Then, a robust filter is designed, guaranteeing that the variance of the state estimation error is not more than the prescribed upper bound. It is shown that the desired filter can be obtained in terms of the solutions to two discrete Riccati difference equations, which are of a form suitable for recursive computation in online applications. A simulation example is presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed approach by comparing to the traditional Kalman filtering method.
