Abstract This paper deals with state estimation using unreliable sensors. The sensor is modelled by a relationship z(t) = γ(t)(Cx(t) + vt)) where z (t), x(t) and v(t) represent observation, state and noise respectively, and γ(t) is a binary valued random variable. A change, in γ(t) from one to zero corresponds to failure and, from zero to one corresponds either to repair or replacement of the failed sensor. We assume that γ(t) is monitored. Since γ(t) is a random variable, the co-variance of the best estimate is also a random variable. We derive expressions for the expected value of this covariance including aspects such as spares and multiple switchings. Also, we examine optimal policies for switching on sensors.
