Nonlinear filters are used in many applications, including speech and image processing, owing to their ability to suppress noise and preserve signal features such as edges. This study presents a performance evaluation of non-linear filters derived from the robust point estimation theory. The first part of the work is a classification of various approaches to nonlinear filtering into three types of estimators according to the process of the filter. The second part is a computer implementation and evaluation of all of the filters discussed. Finally, a summary of experimental results is presented.
