Dear all
I used the below code on 160x5 file and found it work correctly but now i change the file from 160x5 to 160x17 then it show error. Kindly look into it.
clear all, close all, clc
X = FeaturesAngle000Muscle1(:,1:16);
Y = FeaturesAngle000Muscle1(:,17);
rng(1); % For reproducibility
Mdl2 = fitcnb(X,Y,...
'DistributionNames',{'normal','normal','kernel','kernel' 'normal','normal','kernel','kernel' 'normal','normal','kernel','kernel' 'normal','normal','kernel','kernel'},...
'ClassNames',{'HandGrip','HandOpen','HandRest','WristExtension','WristFlexion'});
Mdl2.DistributionParameters{1,2}
isLabels2 = resubPredict(Mdl2); % it generate the output/response of model
ConfusionMat2 = confusionchart(table2array(Y),isLabels2); % Y need to convert
showing error
Error using ClassificationNaiveBayes/fitNonMNDists (line 222)
A normal distribution cannot be fit for the combination of class HandGrip and predictor LD. The data has zero variance.

'ClassNames',{'HandGrip','HandOpen','HandRest','WristExtension','WristFlexion'});
the number of class labels is 5 but I guess yours is 17?

In 1-16 Columns there are different features values of emg signals like RMS, VAR etc and in 17th column there is respective output like handopen, handclose etc
In 1-32 rows the 17th columns have Handopen
in 33-64 the the 17th columns have Handclose
etc

I guess one of the distributions does not match what it is, i.e., variance is zero. In this case, Gaussian distributions cannot be fit anyway...

What i can i do now, other than Gaussian...
