# Error solution in particle filter

1 view (last 30 days)
Hi, I try to run a aprticle filter code with the given process equation and error keep coming out saying
Unable to perform assignment because the size of the left side is 4-by-1 and the size of the right side is 4-by-4.
Error in testing16 (line 46)
x(:,k) = sys(k, x(:,k-1), u(:,k)); % simulate state
Is there any recommendation to solve this problem? Really appreciate your help.
