Smartphone-based ultrasonic dataset

This is a dataset of ultrasonic audio signals emitted and acquired with a Nexus 5 Android phone. Approximately 90 minutes (a total of more than 17600 pings) of ultrasonic recordings have been collected equally divided in two classes: ”Indoor” and ”Outdoor”. The recordings have been collected both in the case the phone was laying on a table and in the case the phone was held by a walking or stationary user.

Smartphone-based accelerometer dataset

This is a dataset of accelerometric sample acquired for Activity Recognition (AR) and Movement Recognition (MR) algorithm. We collected raw measurements (one for each Cartesian axis: x, y, z). Since our algorithm required the framing of the signals, the frame duration has been set equal to 4 s. For the Activity Recognition (AR) case a set of about 14 hours has been employed. Acquisitions were performed by 8 users who kept the smartphones in four different positions and orientations: a) facing towards the user, b) towards the opposite side, c) pointing up, d) pointing down. For the Movement Recognition (MR) case the employed set consists of about 1500 accelerometer signals (corresponding to about 2 hours). Such signals have been acquired by 6 users who have kept the smartphones in their right hand when they performed the movements, independently of the devices orientation. The whole database (AR and MR), already exported in Matlab environment, is downloadable and available for possible further experiments and comparisons.

Smartphone-based human speeches dataset

Dataset 1

This is a dataset of human speeches (both male and female) acquired with smartphones. It consists in a set of clean audio signals belonging to different speakers producing utterances in Italian language. For each known speaker 25 audio files have been acquired, while 41 files are related to unknown speakers. Consequently, the overall audio database consists of 141 files divided into 30 female and 111 male speeches.
