EXPERIMEDIA funds two additional experiments to help train elite athletes at the CAR Smart Venue.
Wireless Multifactor Performance Sensing
CARVIREN: aims to set up a Virtual Community for CAR Venue where cinematic and physiological parameters with high definition recordings (from every Training Session) will be available in real time and/or remotely (if needed), and with the aim to provide rapid feedback to improve the sport performance. CARVIREN will use an innovative system of Specials Hubs based on Real Systems WIMU hub, which collect data from Bluetooth, Ant+ and TCP/IP devices. The hubs will be deployed as part of a distributed Venue Infrastructure and when needed support mobile transmission units, collecting data, processing it and sending it back to CAR in real time, no matter where the hub is deployed in the world. Mobile applications will be developed based on SPORTWIs that allows different actors to setup a dashboard according to their needs. CARVIREN is led by Real Track Systems Ltd.
Remote 3D Motion Capture Configuration
Qualisys: aims to combine the power of 3D motion capture in biomechanical laboratories (CAR) with the necessities in sports analysis to provide reality-close surroundings in measuring (training sites at CAR). By combining existing high end 3D capture systems with modern tools in communication, such as high speed internet, cloud storage and the new 4G mobile network, biomechanical sport studies can be moved outside to the training side, without losing the scientific and medical support a motion laboratory can provide. Additionally, the capacity of the setup to include external technical and scientific support when desired does not compromise confidentiality of the centre and the individual. Qualisys is led by Qualisys Motion Capture Systems with support from Bertram Müller (Biomechanist and Clinical Scientist)
The two funded experiments compliment previous experiments and each other. CARVIREN focuses on how to distributed multifactor sensor data acquired at CAR or any other location through the WIMU hub and to use such data in mobile applications. Qualisys, a world leading in sports motion capture aims to move 3D capture from the laboratory into the field of training by leveraging Internet infrastructures deployed at CAR to remotely configure equipment. 3D Motion capture is a broad field and although addressed by the driving experiment and 3D Acrobat sports the remote configuration of high end motion capture cameras for bio mechanics analysis has not been addressed by EXPERIMEDIA.
