# averagePooling1dLayer

## Description

A 1-D average pooling layer performs downsampling by dividing the input into 1-D pooling regions, then computing the average of each region.

The dimension that the layer pools over depends on the layer input:

For time series and vector sequence input (data with three dimensions corresponding to the

`"C"`

(channel),`"B"`

(batch), and`"T"`

(time) dimensions), the layer pools over the`"T"`

(time) dimension.For 1-D image input (data with three dimensions corresponding to the

`"S"`

(spatial),`"C"`

(channel), and`"B"`

(batch) dimensions), the layer pools over the`"S"`

(spatial) dimension.For 1-D image sequence input (data with four dimensions corresponding to the

`"S"`

(spatial),`"C"`

(channel),`"B"`

(batch), and`"T"`

(time) dimensions), the layer pools over the`"S"`

(spatial) dimension.

## Creation

### Description

creates a 1-D average pooling layer and sets the `layer`

= averagePooling1dLayer(`poolSize`

)`PoolSize`

property.

also specifies the padding or sets the `layer`

= averagePooling1dLayer(`poolSize`

,`Name=Value`

)`Stride`

and Name properties using one or more
optional name-value arguments. For example,
`averagePooling1dLayer(3,Padding=1,Stride=2)`

creates a 1-D average
pooling layer with a pool size of `3`

, a stride of `2`

,
and padding of size `1`

on both the left and right of the input.
