I have a sensor that produces values over time (appr. 50/sec). I visualized these values (X axis is the time), this can be seen on the picture, measurement A and B - these are two independent measurements.
I'm a total beginner, I don't even know how to phrase the question. I just need to get... I don't know... "discrete" (?) values from this noisy data set.
I need something like this (this is happening say under 10 seconds):
Up... Up... Up... Up - I'm only interested in the "ups".
I was thinking of summarizing the values and when it's positive that's an up and when it's negative that's a down. But I don't know where to start and until when do I have to summarize the values...
or if is there (I'm sure there is) any other methodology that is used for this kind of problems.
After talking with Dan Boschen and applying what he recommended (moving average), I got lot smoother result:
Still got difficulties to ignore the false movements, but this is a one-step-forward. I'll continue this topic in a different question.
