Measurements and Statistics

Bistate waveform measurements, variance, histogram, autocorrelation

You can use DSP System Toolbox™ blocks and System objects to measure the moving statistics and stationary statistics of signals in MATLAB® and Simulink®. Moving statistics refer to the statistics of streaming signals that change with time. In the sliding window method for computing moving statistics, a window of specified length moves over the data sample by sample as the new data comes in. The objects and blocks compute the statistics of the data within this window. The exponential weighting method applies a set of weights to the data samples and processes the weighted data. These weights are computed recursively based on the age of the data. For stationary statistics, the blocks and objects compute the statistics of all the data that is available in a batch.
