This paper develops extended Kalman filtering algorithms for a generic Gough-Stewart platform assuming realistically available sensors such as length sensors, rate gyroscopes, and accelerometers. The basic idea is to extend existing methods for satellite attitude estimation. The nondeterministic methods are meant to be a practical alternative to existing iterative, deterministic methods for real-time estimation of platform configuration.
