Swimming with MEMS

SwimTuor is a wearable sensor kit which captures and transmits the data and a standalone application which receives, process and displays the information. It comprises of multiple IMU sensors and a processing board which includes a Wi-Fi transmitter. It captures the sensor data, does required intermediate processing and transmits the primary information to the ground device. The standalone application receives the primary information and does further processing such as calculations, pattern recognition and construction of the 3D model. The user can then access a 3D full body visualization of a swimmer performing front crawl and the basic parameters such as stroke rate, kick rate, stroke count and kick count. Further Information on the joint angles, velocities and the consistency of the swimming style is presented to the user with the visualization. In addition, the user can observe the pitch, yaw and roll angle variations with the time.
