Abstract—We present a wavelet two-directional twodimensional principal component analysis (WT2D2PCA) method for the efficient and effective extraction of essential feature information from high-dimensional signals. Wavelet multi-scale matrices constructed in the first step incorporate the spatial correlation of sub-band signals among channels. In the second step, the two-directional two-dimensional principal component analysis operates on the multi-scale matrices to reduce the dimension, rather than vectors in conventional principal component analysis (PCA). Results are presented from an experiment to classify 20 hand movements using 89-channel myoelectric signals (MES) recorded in stroke survivors, which illustrates the efficiency and effectiveness of the proposed method for high-dimensional signal pattern recognition.
