A class of nonlinear transformation-based filters (NLTF) for state estimation is proposed. The nonlinear transformations that can be used include first (TT1) and second (TT2) order Taylor expansions, the unscented transformation (UT), and the Monte Carlo transformation (MCT) approximation. The unscented Kalman filter (UKF) is by construction a special case, but also nonstandard implementations of the Kalman filter (KF) and the extended Kalman filter (EKF) are included, where there are no explicit Riccati equations. The theoretical properties of these mappings are important for the performance of the NLTF. TT 2 does by definition take care of the bias and covariance of the second order term that is neglected in the TT 1 based EKF. The UT computes this bias term accurately, but the covariance is correct only for scalar state vectors. This result is demonstrated with a simple example and a general theorem, which explicitly shows the difference between TT 1, TT 2, UT, and MCT.
