Comparison of Algorithms For Fitting a Gaussian Function Used in Testing Smart Sensors

Elena Pastuchová and Michal Zákopčan


This article offers useful algorithms for estimating the parameters of the Gaussian curve fitted to observed data, gained in testing of sensors. Fitting was realized using two algorithms Caruanas and Guos, which have been compared.
