Acceleration4TrackProcess Description

This process computes the mean acceleration for a track.

Algorithm Description

The different steps are as follows:

  • process iterates over all pairs of consecutive measurements
    • computes the duration (delta_time) and difference in speed (delta_speed)
    • computes the acceleration (ratio between delta_speed and delta_time; currently only positive values, which means an increase in speed, are considered)
  • computes the mean acceleration for all pairs of measurements (segments)

Process Parameters




  • trackID
    • Type: String
    • Description: ID of track for which mean acceleration should be computed

  • meanAcceleration:
    • Type: double
    • Description: Mean acceleration of track.
