triact: Analyzing the Lying Behavior of Cows from Accelerometer Data

Assists in analyzing the lying behavior of cows from raw data recorded with a triaxial accelerometer attached to the hind leg of a cow. Allows the determination of common measures for lying behavior including total lying duration, the number of lying bouts, and the mean duration of lying bouts. Further capabilities are the description of lying laterality and the calculation of proxies for the level of physical activity of the cow. Reference: Simmler M., Brouwers S. P. (2023) <>.
