Abstract — Estimating the configuration of a vehicle is crucial for navigation. The most classical approaches are Kalman filtering and Bayesian localization, often implemented via particle filtering. This paper reports on-going experimentation with an attractive alternative approach recently developed and based on interval analysis. Contrary to classical Extended Kalman Filtering, this approach allows global localization, and contrary to Bayesian localization it provides guaranteed results in the sense that a set is computed that contains all of the configurations that are consistent with the data and hypotheses. The approach is particularly robust to outliers. Index Terms — Bounded-error estimation, interval analysis, outliers, robust localization
