parse_epoch_string parses the epoch string (e.g. "1 min"), and outputs the corresponding number of samples it represents.

parse_epoch_string(epoch_str, sr)

Arguments

epoch_str

string. The input epoch str as accepted by breaks argument of cut.POSIXt.

sr

number. The sampling rate in Hz used to parse the epoch string.

Value

number. The number of samples represented by the epoch string.

Details

This function parses the given epoch string (e.g. "5 secs") and outputs the corresponding number of samples represented by the epoch string.

How is it used in MIMS-unit algorithm?

This function is used in aggregate_for_mims function and mims_unit function.

#> [1] 900
# 1 hour with 1 Hz = 3600 samples parse_epoch_string('1 hour', sr=1)
#> [1] 3600
# 1 day with 10 Hz = 864000 samples parse_epoch_string('1 day', sr=10)
