Abstract

This paper presents a system for fast detection of gait patterns of walking frame users, where the challenge is to recognize a change in activity before the signal behaves stationary. The system is used as a basis for inferring the user’s intention in order to develop an improved shared-control strategy for an electric-driven walking frame. The data required for gait pattern identification is recorded by a set of low budget infrared distance sensors. We compare different sliding window based feature extraction methods in combination with classical machine learning algorithms in order to realize a fast real-time online gait classification. Moreover, a simple hierarchical feature extraction method is proposed and evaluated on our data-set.
