Description

The dataset consits of .csv files collected from two Myo armbands. The format of the files are [word_name]_[id]. The ‘word_name’ is the English translation of the American Sign Language word used and the ‘id’ is a unique identifier. The .zip for each of the above links has sub-folders for each User. Each file has 50 columns. They represent a sub-sampled data collection from two Myo devices worn on left and right hands of the signer. The first column is the ‘Counter’ that goes from 1 to 50. The following columns are of the format: [Sensor][pod/direction][left/right]. For instance the EMG reading for the first EMG pod (out of 8) on the left hand would be called EMG0R and the accelerometer reading for the Z axis on the left hand would be called: AXL If you use this dataset please cite the following papers: @inproceedings{paudyal2016sceptre, title={Sceptre: a pervasive, non-invasive, and programmable gesture recognition technology}, author={Paudyal, Prajwal and Banerjee, Ayan and Gupta, Sandeep KS}, booktitle={Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces}, pages={282--293}, year={2016}, organization={ACM} } @inproceedings{paudyal2017dyfav, title={Dyfav: Dynamic feature selection and voting for real-time recognition of fingerspelled alphabet using wearables}, author={Paudyal, Prajwal and Lee, Junghyo and Banerjee, Ayan and Gupta, Sandeep KS}, booktitle={Proceedings of the 22nd International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces}, pages={457--467}, year={2017}, organization={ACM} }
