Measurement, analytics and prediction in sport
The greater availability and use of measurement technology like wearable sensors and video analysis technology helps researchers, practitioners and coaches to learn more about training, fatigue and performance enhancement.
Data gathering using these devices is largely automated and has led to the creation of large databases of information about athletic performance.
Through sports data analytics, this information is now being used in sport science and coaching. It has the potential to uncover long-term and emerging patterns in individual athletes and teams' performances.
Having identified the importance of this research theme, we're fast establishing ourselves as leaders in this field.
The quality and impact of our work is evident through our partnerships with the likes of:
- the Australian and Victorian Institutes of Sport (projects in rowing, water polo and netball)
- the Australian Football League (projects with the AFL Umpires, AFL Doctors and Geelong FC)
- Catapult and GPSports (Melbourne-based global leaders in wearable technologies in sport).
