This paper concerns the parameter identification of a mathematical model describing the behavior of a metronome. The problem considered here is to find the values of the parameters, minimizing the output difference between the model and the metronome. By focusing on the discontinuity in the model and using particle swarm optimization, we obtain a solution to the problem. We demonstrate that our solution provides a model capturing the bahavior of the metronome.
