A big challenge when studying motion dynamics in sports is actually recording it. It’s easy to do this on a big thread mill with a camera system, such as Proflex, but when the athlete is performing in the real environment the challenge becomes totally different.
In this project we developed an affordable embedded motion capture device easy to integrate with other data acquisition system through a syncing system. It has integrated high speed recording of raw data from the on board sensors (GPS, Glonass, Accelerometers, Magnetometers, gyroscopes +++), making it possible to tune filter configurations in retrospect.
We did also develop this filtering backend for the customers preferred software package; MathWorks Matlab.
