For a rectangular frame, the Singer acceleration measurement function,
singermeas, assumes a position measurement in 3-D space. Define a position measurement [1;3;0] that has measurement noise [1 0.2 0; 0.2 2 0; 0 0 1].
detection = objectDetection(0, [1;3;0],... 'MeasurementNoise', [1 0.2 0; 0.2 2 0; 0 0 1]);

Usage notes and limitations:
The function returns a filter that uses anonymous functions to define the
StateTransitionCovarianceFcn properties. As a result, the value
of the target maneuver constant (τ = 20s) cannot be modified after
construction. To create a Singer-based filter with a different value of
τ, you must write your own filter initialization function similar
