    Monitoring human motion has recently received great attention and can be used in many applications, such as human motion prediction. We present the collected data set from a body sensor network attached to the human body. The set of sensors consists of accelerometers measuring acceleration in three directions that are attached to the upper and lower back as well as the knees and ankles. In addition, pressures on the insoles are measured with four pressure sensors inside each shoe. Two types of motion are considered: walking backwards on a straight line and walking forwards on a figure-8 path. Finally, we study and present basic statistics of the data.
