Abstract

Insufficient physical activity is the 4th leading risk factor for mortality. The physical activity of a person is reflected in the walking behavior. Different methods for the calculation of the accurate step number exists and most of them are evaluated using different walking speeds measured on a treadmill or using a small sample size of overground walking. In this paper, we introduce the BaSA (Basic Step Activities) dataset consisting of four different step activities (walking, jogging, ascending, and descending stairs) that were performed under natural conditions. We further compare two step segmentation algorithms (a simple peak detection algorithm vs. subsequence Dynamic Time Warping (sDTW)). We calculated a multivariate Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) with repeated measures followed by multiple dependent t-tests with Bonferroni correction to test for significant differences in the two algorithms. sDTW performed equally good compared to the peak detection algorithm, but was not considerably better. In further analysis, continuous, real walking signals with transitions from one step activity to the other step activity should be considered to investigate the adaptability of these two step segmentation algorithms. © 2014 IEEE.
