Wireless Full-Body Capturing for Sport Analytics

With 11 inertial measurement units, the full body motion of a person is tracked during climbing. Potential applications are sports analysis and coaching. Further research will focus on detecting the limbs and body parts in the head mounted camera and use this as additional information for obtaining more precise tracking results. The system has been developed within the European project COGNITO (www.ict-cognito.org)
