During the past ten years, the pervasive connectivity of society has penetrated into the sport sector and drastically changed the way we practice and consume sports. Digitalization in sports is a widely accepted concept adapted in research and by major industrial players. The concept is penetrating all layers from top athletes aiming at improved performance to everyday exercising people optimizing their daily training, or even more commonly, using it for motivational reasons.

In this context, high-end measurement techniques are currently being developed. At Chalmers, we work on new sensor technology that can be integrated in sports equipment. We also develop data drive, artificial intelligence-based, methods to treat the vast amount of data generated in order to present relevant parameters to athletes, coaches and spectators.
