[…] the walking direction changes are selected as way-points., the experimental results are shown and summarized in the following figures and table. the walking trajectory is a closed path along a 400-m track, as shown in the first two figures. and show the positions of the left and right feet for four cases, respectively. presents the rms values of the position differences between the left […]

[…] walking and that at rest were measured, and heart rate changes from at rest to during walking were calculated. the walking distance was measured by having participants walk for 15 minutes on a 98.04 m track in our university’s sports hall. participants walked individually in a counterclockwise direction and at a natural pace. the walking speed was calculated based on the walking distance […]

[…] study were to examine the validity and reliability of the 10 hz johan gps unit in assessing in-line movement and change of direction. the validity was tested against the criterion measure of 200 m track-and-field (track-and-field athletes, n = 8) and 20 m shuttle run endurance test (female soccer players, n = 20). intra-unit and inter-unit reliability was tested by intra-class correlation […]

[…] of sight is shorter than 70 m. obviously absolute tgmts are accurate enough for railway track geometry surveying, but the speed is fair low due to the stop-and-go surveying mode, and only about 150-m track per hour can be surveyed by this method. gnss is also widely used for absolute geo-referencing to achieve 2–5 cm measurement accuracy in the post-processing kinematic mode., is it possible […]

[…] objectively, we used three-dimensional motion capture vicon (oxford, uk) at a sample rate of 100 hz for quantification of spatiotemporal parameters. the participants were asked to walk along a 6-m track under 12 infrared cameras for motion capture. stride length, walking speed, cadence, step time, stride time, step length, single support, double support and proportion of the gait cycle spent […]
