Vertical Jumping

Template:PD Help Page/pt


File Description

Each text file contains a number of samples from a jump experiment.
The first column contains a timestamp; the second, third and fourth column contain the accelerometer values for arbitrary X, Y and Z axes. The fifth column contains the value of the magnitude vector for the acceleration, calculated as the Euclidean Module of the vector whose components are the X, Y and Z values.

Acquisition Scenario

The test subject was instrumented with the BioPlux device and the accelerometer sensor, placed at his/her waist. No particular order or orientation was defined when placing the sensor.
There are different subjects performing this experiment.

Acquisition Hardware

  • Data acquisition system: bioPlux research (1000 Hz, 12 bits) and Smartphone
  • Sensor: Accelerometer sensor.

Data Format

Data is presented in a column-formatted text file. The relevant columns are:

  • column 1 - timestamp
  • column 2 - X value
  • column 3 - Y value
  • column 4 - Z value
  • column 5 - Euclidean module of the acceleration vector
