Profiling Sprints Using On-Body Sensors

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper describes the design, implementation and deployment of a wireless sensor system for athletes. The system is designed to profile sprints based on input from on-body sensors that are wirelessly connected to a nearby infrastructure. The authors discuss the choice and use of inexpensive Force Sensitive Resistors (FSRs) to measure foot event timings and provide a detailed analysis of the profiling method used to represent high-level information to the coaches and athletes. In this profiling method, they detect sprinting intervals from high-resolution sensor data, and compute the ground contact times for sprinting performances.
