Paper Abstract

An ambulatory measurement system for human walking is discussed. We found that the acceleration waveform at the waist varied significantly according to the sort of walking e. g. on a fiat floor or up/down stairs. The method proposed in this paper detects the variation of the waveform to identify the walking. The procedures of the method are as follows: At the beginning several acceleration waveforms for each sort of walking are measured and classified using the clustering method to make a set of reference waveforms. Next measured waveforms are compared with the clusters then we recognize which sort of walking the waveform comes from.
