The paper presents an application of unscented
Kalman filters to an automotive electronic throttle device. The
motivation of this study is on estimating the position of the
throttle device when measurements of position are inaccessible,
e.g., due to failures in the sensor of position. In this case, an
external wattmeter is connected in the circuitry to measure the
power consumed by the throttle, and this information feeds
unscented Kalman filters to produce the estimation for the
position. Experimental data support the findings of this paper.
