  • Gait modelling

    We are preparing a submittal to a US government agency in which we
    propose to develop a method for tracking the location and orientation of
    an individual with a GPS system combined with an accelerometer array
    mounted to his waist. What we want to do is use information from the
    accelerometer array to provide knowledge (during short periods when GPS
    system is blacked out) of how far and in what direction the individual
    walks. Our hypothesis is that there is sufficient information to model
    the person's gait, and infer from acceleration measurements how far the
    person moves with each step. (Like a pedometer).

    We are looking for someone with experience in this field (gait analysis)
    that would be able to work with us on this project, should it get funded.
    If you have an interest, or know of someone who might be interested,
    please let me know. I would like to include your name and credentials in
    our proposal, if that is acceptable.

    Thank you,
    Joe Crites
