Paper Abstract

Huber's approach to robust estimation is highly fruitful for solving estimation problems with contaminated data or under incomplete information according to the error structure. A simple selection procedure based on robustness to variations of the errors distribution from the assumed one, is proposed. Minimax M-estimator is used to estimate efficiently the parameters and the measurement quantity. A performance deviation criterion is computed by the mean of the Monte Carlo method improved by the Latin Hypercube Sampling. The selection produced is applied to a real measurement problem, grooves dimensioning using Remote Field Eddy Current inspection.
