Summary: 
The TLS method is an unbiased estimator for solving the overdetermined set of linear equations when errors occur in all data. However it doesn't show robustness while the errors have a heavy tailed pdf. In this letter we derive a robust method of TLS (ROTLS) based on the characteristics of TLS solution, where the performance of ROTLS is verified by applying it to the system identification problem.
