Detailed Description

template<typename T>
class drake::manipulation::util::MovingAverageFilter< T >

The implementation of a Moving Average Filter.

This discrete time filter outputs the average of the last n samples i.e. y[k] = 1/n ∑ⱼ x[k-j] ∀ j = 0..n-1, when n<k and, = 1/k ∑ⱼ x[j] ∀ j = 0..k otherwise; where n is the window size and x being the discrete-time signal that is to be filtered, y is the filtered signal and k is the index of latest element in the signal time-series.

Note that this class is meant to serve as a standalone simple utility and a filter of this form in a more `drake::systems` flavour can be generated from a `systems::AffineSystem` since this is a LTI filter.

Template Parameters
TThe element type. Instantiated templates for the following kinds of T's are provided:
  • double
  • VectorX<double>

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

MovingAverageFilter ( const MovingAverageFilter< T > &  )
MovingAverageFilter ( int  window_size)

Constructs the filter with the specified window_size.

window_sizeThe size of the window.
astd::runtime_error when window_size <= 0.

Member Function Documentation

MovingAverageFilter& operator= ( const MovingAverageFilter< T > &  )
MovingAverageFilter& operator= ( MovingAverageFilter< T > &&  )
T Update ( const T &  new_data)

Updates the average filter result.

Every call to this method modifies the internal state of this filter thus resulting in a computation of the moving average of the data present within the filter window.
