test.verification.3d {eRTG3D} | R Documentation |
Uses two-sample Kolmogorov-Smirnov test or the one-sample t-test to compare the geometric characteristics of the original track with the characteristics of the simulated track.

Test objects of the 6 two-sample Kolmogorov-Smirnov test conducted.
By choosing test = "ttest"
a random sample, without replacement is taken from the longer track,
to shorten it to the length of the longer track. The order of the shorter track is also sampled randomly.
Then the two randomly ordered vectors of turn angles, lift angles and step lengths are substracted from each other.
If the both tracks stem from the same distributions the the mean deviatio should tend to towards zero, therefore the
difference is tested two-sided against mu = 0
with a one-sample t-test.
By setting test = "ks"
a two-sample Kolmogorov-Smirnov test is carried out on the distributions of turn angles,
lift angles and step lengths of the two tracks.
