Data Set Information:

The SELFBACK dataset contains data of 9 activity classes; 6 ambulatory activities
and 3 sedentary activities, performed by 33 participants.
Data are recorded with two tri-axial accelerometers sampling at 100Hz, mounted on
the dominant side wrist and the thigh of the participant.

**Application**
The dataset can be used for human activity recognition by developing algorithms for
pre-processing, feature extraction, sensor fusion, segmentation and classification.

** Data collection method **
Each participant performed an activity for approximately 3 minutes.
** Sensors**
Axivity AX3 3-Axis Logging Accelerometer
- sampling frequency -- 100Hz
- range -- 8g
** Activity Classes**
- Walking Upstairs
- Walking Downstairs
- Walking in slow pace
- Walking in medium pace
- Walking in fast pace
- Jogging
- Standing
- Sitting
- Lying
** Data folder **

SELFBACK dataset has three folders, two folders one for each sensor modality
named "w" for wrist and "t" for thigh and an additional folder where two sensor
modalities are merged using timestamp named "wt" for wrist and thigh.
Inside "w" and "t" folders, 9 folders can be found, one for each activity class, and
inside, there are 33 files, one file for each participant.
Inside "wt" folder, there are 297(33 X 9) files where the file name indicates the
person and the activity.


Attribute Information:

The 4 columns in the files in t and w folder is organized as follows:
1 -- timestamp
2 -- x value
3 -- y value
4 -- z value
Min value = -8
Max value = +8
The 6 columns in the files in wt folder is organized as follows:
1 -- wrist x value
2 -- wrist y value
3 -- wrist z value
4 -- thigh x value
5 -- thigh y value
6 -- thigh z value
Min value = -8
Max value = +8
