Title
(EN) METHOD AND DEVICE FOR MEASURING THE PROGRESS OF A MOVING PERSON
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET DISPOSITIF PERMETTANT DE MESURER LA PROGRESSION D'UNE PERSONNE EN MOUVEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to measuring devices to be used in physical measuring, and more particularly, to a method and a device for measuring the progress of a moving person. In the solution according to the invention the quantities describing the progress of the moving person can be calculated based on vertical acceleration values of the body measured by means of an acceleration sensor, and on the measured time. The invention aims at providing a solution, better and simpler than prior solutions, for measuring the progress of a moving person, which solution is applicable for use in a multitude of measuring solutions for ways of locomotion of various types.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des dispositifs de mesure destinés à être utilisés pour des mesures physiques, et plus particulièrement un procédé et un dispositif permettant de mesurer la progression d'une personne en mouvement. Dans la solution selon l'invention, les quantités décrivant la progression de la personne en mouvement peuvent être calculées sur la base de valeurs d'accélération verticale du corps mesurées au moyen d'un capteur d'accélération, et du temps mesuré. L'invention a pour but de fournir une solution meilleure et plus simple que les solutions antérieures, pour mesurer la progression d'une personne en mouvement, laquelle solution est applicable pour une utilisation dans une multitude de solutions de mesure pour des moyens de locomotion divers.
