In personal navigation, pedestrian dead reckoning (PDR) systems based on low-cost self-contained sensors exploit the kinematics of human walking, and are well suited for indoor use and in urban canyons where GPS signals are degraded or not available. Considering the electromyography (EMG), which measures electrical potentials generated by muscle contractions from human body, would reflect the muscle activities during human locomotion, this kind of biomedical signal can be utilized to capture… CONTINUE READING
