Hi all. I have the x and y coordinates of a moving object. I already calculated the total distance and the average velocity of that object. However, I want to know the object velocity, in four different velocity zones, over time. How can I do it?

What is a "velocity zone"? You can get the velocity at every single time point. But what do you want to do with that to know what it is in a "velocity zone"?

Maybe "velocity zones" are not the best expression. I want to know the object velocity in diferent speed categories (low, moderate, high...).

If you have (x,y) coordinates/ locations / positions at different time steps...then dx/dt gives velocity.

I believe the categorical function is what you ware looking for. Check categorical function and check 'Bin Numeric Data into Categories'
