perturb

Apply perturbations to object

Description

example

offsets = perturb(obj) applies the perturbations defined on the object, obj and returns the offset values. You can define perturbations on the object by using the perturbations function.

Examples

collapse all

Define a waypoint trajectory. By default, this trajectory contains two waypoints.

traj = waypointTrajectory
traj = 
  waypointTrajectory with properties:

         SampleRate: 100
    SamplesPerFrame: 1
          Waypoints: [2x3 double]
      TimeOfArrival: [2x1 double]
         Velocities: [2x3 double]
             Course: [2x1 double]
        GroundSpeed: [2x1 double]
          ClimbRate: [2x1 double]
        Orientation: [2x1 quaternion]
          AutoPitch: 0
           AutoBank: 0
     ReferenceFrame: 'NED'

Define perturbations on the Waypoints property and the TimeOfArrival property.

rng(2020);
perturbs1 = perturbations(traj,'Waypoints','Normal',1,1)
perturbs1=2×3 table
       Property          Type            Value       
    _______________    ________    __________________

    "Waypoints"        "Normal"    {[  1]}    {[  1]}
    "TimeOfArrival"    "None"      {[NaN]}    {[NaN]}

perturbs2 = perturbations(traj,'TimeOfArrival','Selection',{[0;1],[0;2]})
perturbs2=2×3 table
       Property           Type                     Value             
    _______________    ___________    _______________________________

    "Waypoints"        "Normal"       {[     1]}    {[            1]}
    "TimeOfArrival"    "Selection"    {1x2 cell}    {[0.5000 0.5000]}

Perturb the trajectory.

offsets = perturb(traj)
offsets=2×1 struct array with fields:
    Property
    Offset
    PerturbedValue

The Waypoints property and the TimeOfArrival property have changed.

traj.Waypoints
ans = 2×3

    1.8674    1.0203    0.7032
    2.3154   -0.3207    0.0999

Create an insSensor object.

sensor = insSensor
sensor = 
  insSensor with properties:

           MountingLocation: [0 0 0]                 
               RollAccuracy: 0.2                deg  
              PitchAccuracy: 0.2                deg  
                YawAccuracy: 1                  deg  
           PositionAccuracy: [1 1 1]            m    
           VelocityAccuracy: 0.05               m/s  
       AccelerationAccuracy: 0                  m/s² 
    AngularVelocityAccuracy: 0                  deg/s
                  TimeInput: 0                       
               RandomStream: 'Global stream'         

Define the perturbation on the RollAccuracy property as three values with an equal possibility each.

values = {0.1 0.2 0.3}
values=1×3 cell array
    {[0.1000]}    {[0.2000]}    {[0.3000]}

probabilities = [1/3 1/3 1/3]
probabilities = 1×3

    0.3333    0.3333    0.3333

    "AngularVelocityAccuracy"    "None"         {[   NaN]}    {[                 NaN]}

Perturb the sensor object using the perturb function.

rng(2020)
perturb(sensor);
sensor
sensor = 
  insSensor with properties:

           MountingLocation: [0 0 0]                 
               RollAccuracy: 0.5                deg  
              PitchAccuracy: 0.2                deg  
                YawAccuracy: 1                  deg  
           PositionAccuracy: [1 1 1]            m    
           VelocityAccuracy: 0.05               m/s  
       AccelerationAccuracy: 0                  m/s² 
    AngularVelocityAccuracy: 0                  deg/s

               RandomStream: 'Global stream'         

The RollAccuracy is perturbed to 0.5 deg.
