Hi All(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As the title of this thread suggest, I am looking for ways to recognize patterns in an analog waveform. Well the obvious answer to this question is use Artifical Neural Network (ANN) as ( from the text on google) its been used for pattern recognition and all sorts of stuff. Ive been trying to learn about these ANNs for the past week and trust me all the literature kind of put me off

So, I need your expert advise on how I could possible recognize patterns in an analog waveform. At this point in my project Im not sure what exactly I would be serching for in the waveform but it would certainly be things like :

1) Delta Y ( to reach first maxima/minima in the waveform)

2) Slew rate to first maxima/minima

3) Maximum Delta Y

4) Delta X

5) Delta X to reach first maxima/minima

and so on..........

Any advise ( especially on anything other than ANN) would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
