Seminar: Ubiquitous Sports Technologies


Especially runners and cyclists have a variety of possibilities to record and analyze their workouts. However most of the existing approaches allow and analysis only after the workout and athletes could not interact with the system throughout their actual workout.

In this seminar we will go beyond this and design interactive sports experiences that rely on all sorts of wearable technologies such smart watches and fitness tracker, heart rate and EMG sensors, smart phones and smart glasses but also DIY tracking technology. The seminar further aims to broaden the scope of ubiquitous sports tracking. Besides running and cycling other sports such as badminton, climbing, parkour will be addressed as well.

More information will be announced soon...
