Toward the ambitious long-term goal of developing a robotic circus, this thesis addresses key steps toward the development of a ground robot that can catch a ball. Toward this end, we examine nonlinear quadratic drag trajectories for a tossed ball. Relevant least square error fits are provided. It is also shown how a Kalman filter and Extended Kalman filter can be used to generate estimates for the ball trajectory.
