This paper is concerned with the robust distributed filtering problem for nonlinear systems subject to sensor saturations and fractional parameter uncertainties. A sufficient condition is derived for the filtering error system to reach the required performance in terms of recursive linear matrix inequality method. An iterative algorithm is then proposed to obtain the filter parameters recursively by solving the corresponding linear matrix inequality. A numerical example is presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
