1 Scientific Measurements consist of: Number: the quantitative outcome of a measurement (i.e. "the number"). unit the scale used to produce the number (tells us dimensionality and the system of units being used) specifier what entity is being measured (e.g. length vs. width) identifier or origin, is the entity is being measured (e.g. the box) accuracy of the measurement (of which precision is on component). ME/ECE 739: Measurement, Estimation, Sensor Fusion, Kalman Filtering Random Variables • We specify the probability with which different values are taken by the random variable, we use the probability distribution Function: • or by the probability density function : Some Terms mean - the “center of probability mass” estimate mode - the value of x that has the highest probability, locating the peak of the density median - the value of x such that half of the probability mass lies to the left and half to the right of it.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
