In Proceedings of International Congress on Neurotechnology, Electronics and Informatics, (NEUROTECHNIX-2013), 19.9.-20.9.2013, Vilamoura, SCITEPRESS Digital Library, pages 41-45, Sep/2013.
Adaptation of human-machine interaction devices by means of physiological data requires online analysis. We introduce new update formulas for otherwise time-demanding calculations of window based current mean and variance of the signal. Those were required for efficient realtime time series data processing. We discuss the formulas with the help of synthetic data. They differ from existing incremental calculations due to a decremental component, because of samples leaving the window of observation. An example application for
EMG-based movement onset prediction is presented.
