Re: [PATCH 0/4] Add WoM feature as an IIO event

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi Jonathan,

it makes sense indeed, using a value in m/s2 per second and computing the corresponding threshold based on the sampling frequency. Just that this will be a check against the absolute value of accel, no sign supported. That's why I was thinking about magnitude more than threshold.

It will effectively be more complex to handle because it will depend on the sampling frequency and will require to adapt the threshold value when changing sampling frequency.

I will rework this series to switch to ROC instead.

Adaptive thresholds are normally used when a threshold is based on
some offset form a heavily filtered version of the same channel (often
with filter resets and other nastiness)  It's an obscure hack we added
because we couldn't really get these to fit with another scheme.
This seems simpler than that from your description.

As it's just against the previous reading and I assume the chip
is in a self clocking mode during this, it might be more appropriate
to use a Rate of Change Event (ROC).  There are references to
this being a threshold on highpassed sample, so I guess there might
be some filtering to make this messier? 

The control of a roc threshold will be a little more complex as
you'll need to take into account the sampling frequency.
Advantage is you end up with something easily human understandable.

A human doesn't want to have to figure out what the right value
is for the particular frequency they are sampling at.
