Real time data streaming from smart phones
MetadataShow full item record
There are many aspects of the athlete's performance that can and need to be measured to improve performance or to fine-tune skills. This can be done visually by a coach or by using sensors attached to the athlete. This paper discusses the common sensor data capture methods and the main requirements for a data capturing system with special attention paid to the requirements for a real time data capturing system. An implementation of a real time data capture system consisting of an iPhone and a laptop is presented. The system was tested on a runner performing a slow jog. The acceleration signatures for the running was streamed from the iPhone to the laptop and displayed in real time thus validating the system.
