AN-2554: Step Counting Using the ADXL367

Analog Devices Inc.

Published Date: May 2023


This application note describes the implementation of a pedometer algorithm for the ADXL367, a 3-axis digital accelerometer. The algorithm is based on peak detection analysis of the acceleration produced by a step over a predefined time window. Empirical results for a wrist worn use case show approximately 97% average accuracy under different scenarios.
