Subject: Real-time Wavelet Signal Denoising in Matlab

How can I implement matlab "mswden" function for real-time signal denoising? For example inside a for-loop every step if i get a new sample for a signal how can i denoise it? In matlab help there are some examples but unfortunately they are all off-line denoising.

I used some other techniques such as moving average or Savitzky-Golay in matlab but there is a delay between row and denoised signal. I have been told that wavelet denoising can handle with this problem.

Regards

Well, in my experience, wavelets are not good for real-time denoising because of end effects.
When you decompose a signal, the end points in each wavelet detail can oscillate wildly, meaning that you must discard everything near the ends as being spurious. Which of course is no good for real-time denoising because you can only be sure your denoised signal is OK for many time steps before the present.

Then what method would you suggest me for real-time denoising?

I don't know of a universal method.
Your moving average method would seem to be as good as any.
You can play with the weights so that the recent data are more important than old data. One method is called exponential weighting into the past (Google it).

Good luck!!
