Performance comparison of automatic peak detection for signal analyser

Teh Yi Jun, Asral Bahari Jambek, Uda Hashim


The aim of this paper is to propose a new peak detection method for a portable device, which know as modified automatic threshold peak detection (M-ATPD). M-ATPD evolves out of ATPD with a focus on reducing computational time. The proposed method replaces the clustering threshold calculation in ATPD with a standard deviation threshold calculation. M-ATPD reduces computational time by 2 times faster compared to ATPD for control signal and 8.65 times faster compared to ATPD for raw biosignals. Modified ATPD also shows a slight improvement in terms of detection error, with a decrease of about 6.66% to 13.33% in peak detection of noise signals. Modified ATPD successfully fixes the error of peak detection on pulse control signals associated with ATPD.  For raw biosignals, in total M-ATPD achieved 19.41% lower detection error compare to ATPD.
