Does the dynamic time warping function of Matlab normalize for different dimensions before performing DTW?

4 views (last 30 days)
The DTW function in Matlab calculates the distance between two signals. It is possible to apply the algorithm on multidimensional signals (for example position/velocity/orientation), but does the DTW function in Matlab normalize these signals before performing DTW on them? I can't find in the Matlab help function if normalization of the signals is performed before performing DTW (

Not in DTW directly. FINDSIGNAL has a variant that calls DTW and it has some basic normalization.
