1930 – Rudolph Kalman – bio

Rudolph Kalman was born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1930 and was known for his work in mathematics and electrical engineering. The “Kalman filter” is an algorithm known as a linear quadratic estimation, and is used in time series analysis and applied to signal processing, trajectory optimization, and econometrics. This means it is used widely in navigation and control systems. Kalman filters have been instrumental in the development of aerospace technology, robotics, and the GPS system.
