Measuring road profile is mainly used for a road maintenance purpose. Another interesting application of the knowledge on road profile is vehicle localization if the knowledge is available in real-time. A cost effective and implementable approach of measuring or estimating a road profile in a passenger vehicle is estimating the profile using inertial sensors that is readily installed for active safety features. The suggested method is a Kalman filter based disturbance observer without assuming a constant disturbance. By estimating the disturbance of k-1 time step at the k time step, the constant disturbance assumption is not necessary. The required observer structure and dynamics are presented as well as simulation and experimental results.
