DATASET SUMMARY:

Activities: 3
Sensor devices: 1
Subjects: varies

EXPERIMENTAL SETUP

The collected dataset comprises body motion and vital signs recordings for several volunteers of diverse profile while performing 3physical activities (Table 1). Shimmer3 wearable sensors were used for the recordings. The sensors were respectively placed on the subject's waist attached by using elastic straps (as shown in the figure in attachment). The use of multiple sensors permits us to measure the motion experienced by diverse body parts, namely, the acceleration, the rate of turn, thus better capturing the body dynamics. All sensing modalities are recorded at a sampling rate of 50 Hz(normal range), which is considered sufficient for capturing human activity. few session was recorded using a video camera. The activities were collected in an out-of-lab environment with no constraints on the way these must be executed, with the exception that the subject should try their best when executing them.

ACTIVITY SET

The activity set is listed in the following:
L1: Standing still (5sec)
L4: Walking (1 min)
L11: Stand to Sitting (3 steps) (time varies)
NOTE: In brackets are the number of repetitions (Nx) or the duration of the exercises (min).

A complete and illustrated description (including table of activities, sensor setup, etc.) of the dataset is provided in the papers presented in the presentation section.

Attribute Information:

The data collected for each subject is stored in a different log file: 'shimmer XXX.xls'(XXX will be number between 001 to 999). Each file contains the samples (by rows) recorded for all sensors (by columns). The labels used to identify the activities are similar to the abovementioned (e.g., the label for walking is '4').

The meaning of each column is detailed next:
Column 1: Time stamp raw
Column 2: Time stamp in millisecond
Column 3: acceleration raw (X axis)
Column 4: Acceleration cal (X axis)
Column 5: acceleration raw (Y axis)
Column 6: Acceleration cal (Y axis)
Column 7: : acceleration raw (Z axis)
Column 8: Acceleration cal (Z axis)
Column 9: gyro raw (X axis)
Column 10: gyro cal (X axis)
Column 11: gyro raw (Y axis)

Column 12: gyro cal (Y axis)
Column 13: gyro raw (Z axis)
Column 14: gyro cal (Z axis)

*Units: Acceleration (m/s^2), gyroscope (deg/s).
