Preliminary work began in 2010 to estimate the position of a vehicle traveling on known road network using a Histogram Filter. A paper was published in the 2011 American Control Conference, which can be found here. The research for this paper was funded by the Air Force Research Laboratories, Air Vehicles Directorate.
