Abstract

This paper presents a new 1-D LBP (Local Binary Pattern) based technique for onset detection. The algorithm is tested on forearm surface myoelectric signals that occur due to lower arm gestures. Unlike other onset detection algorithms, the method does not require manual threshold setting and fine-tuning, which makes it faster and easier to implement. The only variables are window size, histogram type and the number of histogram bins. It is also not necessary to measure the properties of the signal during a quiescent period before the algorithm can be used. 1-D LBP Onset Detection is compared with single and double threshold methods and is shown to be more robust and accurate.
