Data includes wrist motion (accelerometer x, y, z; gyroscope yaw, pitch, roll) and a table embedded scale (tray weight), all synchronized to video cameras positioned in the ceiling that recorded the head and torso of each subject as they ate.
For more background see the Bite Counter Project or this paper.
Columns 1-3 are from a ST Microelectronics LIS344alh accelerometer. Units are volts. The values can be converted to gravities using G=(V-1.65)x(5.0/3.3) where V is the voltage and G is the gravities. Columns 4-6 are from a ST Microelectronics LPY410al gyroscope. Units are volts. The values can be converted to deg/sec using D=(V-zero)x400 where V is the voltage and D is the degrees per second. The value for zero should be calculated independently for each file as the average value for each axis in the entire file. It will typically be around 1.25. This allows for small voltage drifts for the 0 deg/sec reference point. Column 7 is from a OHAUS Scout Pro SP4001 scale. Units are grams. The scale values will very occasionally read 0.0. These are an artifact of synchronization and should be ignored or replaced with the average of surrounding non-zero values.
An excerpt of bite ground truth is shown in the following table (click here to see the full text file).
Column 1 is the bite index. Column 2 is the data index at which the bite occurred. Column 3 is the hand used (left, right or both). Column 4 is the utensil used (fork, spoon, chopsticks or hand). Column 5 is the container used (plate, bowl, glass or cup). Column 6 is the food or beverage consumed (click here for a complete list of unique food items).
An excerpt of gesture ground truth is shown in the following table (click here to see the full text file).
Column 1 is the gesture type (bite, drink, rest, utensiling or other). Column 2 is the data index at which the gesture starts. Column 3 is the data index at which the gesture ends. Note that this ground truth only describes gestures taken with the dominant (instrumented) hand.
An enhanced gestures ground truth is available that describes bite and drink gestures taken with either hand. We used it for gesture recognition from video. It uses the same format as above.
