how to do? Find the starting and ending points of the exercise on the graph

5 views (last 30 days)
I found the speed by integrating the acceleration data using the IMU sensor. Low-pass filters were applied to detrend and noise cancellation due to drift.
Now I want to get something to mark when the movement is over, what should I do?
I saw the video I filmed for motion capture, and the part that I marked was the moment the movement ended, and when I repeated the same movement, it all came out like that
Can you help me.. please...
for yourinformation

*getvelocity is..
function v = getvelocity(acc, time)
v = zeros(1, length(acc));
for i = 1:length(acc)-1
dt = time(i+1) - time(i);
% numerical integration
v(i+1) = v(i)+0.5*dt*(acc(i) + acc(i+1));

The start point of the movement is considered to be the first time when it increases or decreases rapidly, and the end point of the movement is to be considered the first time when the section begins to maintain a constant straight line after the last time
I need to find the start and end times of their movements with a lot of similar files. However, I can't use the method of finding using the threshold because the threshold values of the certain sections indicated by the files are all different due to drift..

It's hard to "imagine" what your pain point is solely based on your description. Why don't you show how "different" the drift effects are across "files"? You can hardly find solutions without knowing pain points.
