Wearable IoT Solution Optimizes Athlete And Team Performance

first_imgAnalog Devices has announced its collaboration with Microsoft Corp. and Hexoskin regarding a unique, wearable Internet of Things (IoT) solution for athlete and team performance management at the IoT World Forum. This IoT solution will allow coaches and team staff to monitor player information such as motion, heart rate, and other useful health and performance metrics from sensor-equipped vests worn by players. This information, combined with player location and environmental data, is sent to a secure cloud-based analytics platform providing critical insights back to team staff via a dashboard. By informing better player interventions and improving game-time tactical decisions, this IoT solution helps provide significant competitive advantage to teams. In addition, it is designed to enable better overall management of player health, recovery, and injury avoidance, extending the benefits far beyond an individual game.Martin Cotter, vice president, IoT, Healthcare and Consumer Business Units, Analog Devices said – “We are very excited to lead this initiative, as it involves a unique set of measurement and analytical challenges that we’re uniquely positioned to solve. Some of the performance indicators we’re interested in are not yet fully understood and can’t be measured directly. So, we’re leveraging our precision sensing and algorithm capabilities, as well as our expertise in biomedical applications to think differently about the challenge and develop a unique solution. We’re thrilled to be working on this challenge along with Microsoft and Hexoskin, without whom a complete deployable solution would not be possible.”Complementing Analog Devices’ sensing and measurement expertise, this solution utilizes Hexoskin’s innovative e-textile platform, which has received strong praise and validation from the athletic and medical communities. The Microsoft Azure IoT technology helps to solve analysis and user-experience challenges with a cloud-based analytics engine as well as the user dashboard application. This wearable smart jersey demonstrates how Azure IoT enables advanced analysis and real-time actionable insights from individual athlete and team-level input.This IoT solution is currently being implemented and tested in collaboration with one of Ireland’s most prominent hurling clubs. It’s an extremely tough and demanding team sport, with athletes at the pinnacle of performance and is one of the toughest environments to test the technology.While the initial prototypes were developed for athlete management, this technology has implications across numerous team-based settings (e.g. emergency services first-responders) where performance, health and safety, and tactical decision-making are critical to enable a successful outcome.last_img read more

Steelers go for 2 and everything else, crush 49ers 43-18

first_imgPittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown (84) twists away from San Francisco 49ers cornerback Tramaine Brock (26) to go for a big gain after making a catch in the second quarter of an NFL football game, Sunday, Sept. 20, 2015, in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Don Wright) PITTSBURGH (AP) — The sheet and 20 years of conventional NFL wisdom said to kick. The Pittsburgh Steelers took a look at it, ripped it up and set it on fire.Considering how easy Ben Roethlisberger and company made finding the end zone look on Sunday against overmatched San Francisco, there may be no going back.Roethlisberger passed for 369 yards and three touchdowns, DeAngelo Williams tied a team record with three rushing scores and the Steelers converted a pair of early 2-point attempts to seize momentum and roll to a remarkably easy 43-18 win.“We’re going to take our shots,” wide receiver Antonio Brown said. “It’s another opportunity to put points on the board.”Brown caught nine passes for 195 yards and one touchdown and had a 2-point conversion catch for the Steelers, who needed all of 23 minutes to pile up 453 yards even without All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell and wide receiver Martavis Bryant. The two 23-year-olds sat out a second straight game for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, though Bell will return next week when Pittsburgh visits St. Louis.“When we get all our pieces back to this puzzle, it’s going to be a beautiful puzzle man,” Williams said.Given 10 days to recover from a 28-21 loss to New England, Pittsburgh responded by looking every bit as explosive as offensive coordinator Todd Haley insisted it could be. Frustrated by an inability to finish drives with touchdowns against the Patriots, the Steelers decided to end them with exclamation points while ruining San Francisco coach Jim Tomsula’s homecoming.Despite an easy opening week win over Minnesota, Tomsula stressed he was “worried about them Steelers,” a line he delivered in an intentionally thick Pittsburgh accent as a way of paying tribute to his roots.The Steelers began each practice during training camp with a drill called “seven shots.” The starting offense would run seven plays from the 2 — the distance of a 2-point conversion — against the starting defense.It wasn’t just for late-game situations. Tomlin hinted he’d become more aggressive going for two after the league moved back the extra point kick. He backed it up twice in the first half, keeping the offense on the field following touchdowns by Heath Miller and Williams.Both times the Steelers converted with ease. Roethlisberger connected with a wide-open Brown to put Pittsburgh up 8-0. The Steelers initially lined up to kick after Williams’ first score but Tomlin changed his mind when San Francisco was flagged for being offside. With the ball moved up to the 1, Roethlisberger flipped a pass to Miller.“We put so much time and effort into those plays and if you’re going to be successful doing them, why not do it?” Roethlisberger said.Tomlin finally sent kicker Josh Scobee out for a one-point kick after Darrius Heyward-Bey’s 35-yard touchdown reception early in the second quarter. Scobee, who missed a pair of field goals in the opener, smacked it off the upright. When Scobee did connect on one to push the Pittsburgh advantage to 29-3 with 1:58 to go in the half, the largest regular season crowd in Heinz Field history greeted the kick with a Bronx cheer.The plodding 49ers couldn’t keep pace.Colin Kaepernick threw for 335 yards and two scores but was sacked five times and didn’t get comfortable until it was far too late. Torrey Smith had six receptions for 120 yards and a touchdown.“Obviously with the offense the Steelers have, we have to match the touchdowns and we didn’t do that today,” Kaepernick said.Two San Francisco long drives — 17 plays in the first half and 18 plays in the second — netted just three points. None of the Steelers’ six scoring drives took more than eight plays.“It’s no secret,” Tomsula said. “They do a wonderful job of creating. That’s what happened. You can’t give up big plays.”NOTES: 49ers RB Carlos Hyde ran for 43 yards before leaving in the second half following a shot to the head. He was cleared by doctors to return but was held out as a precaution. … Steelers LB Ryan Shazier had a career-high 15 tackles, but left with a minor right shoulder injury. … Roethlisberger tied Terry Bradshaw’s team record for career wins (107). … San Francisco plays at Arizona next Sunday.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL,PITTSBURGH (AP) — The sheet and 20 years of conventional NFL wisdom said to kick.

Preview: Malmo welcome a Real Madrid in search of goals

first_img Most expect another Madrid victory here, with the question being whether or not Cristiano can find the net. Madrid thrashed Shakhtar Donetsk 4-0 in their Champions League opener, while Malmo were defeated 2-0 by PSG. Upd. at 15:44 Sport EN With the derby against Atletico Madrid at the weekend to think about, Rafa Benitez may choose to bring in Casemiro or Mateo Kovacic, with Toni Kroos off form recently. Cristiano Ronaldo will be looking to overcome his poor form, which has seen him fail to score in only two of seven games this season – although he has eight goals in total.  Ronaldo is one away from 500 in his career, and, more importantly, three off beating Raul Gonzalez’s all-time record. CEST Malmo, for their part, are only fifth in the Swedish league and surprisingly struggling this season. Real Madrid have several players injured for their trip to Malmo, including James Rodriguez, Gareth Bale, Sergio Ramos, Pepe and Danilo, but they should still have enough to overcome the Swedes. 30/09/2015last_img read more

Gary Shanahan and Jesse Devers sign new contracts with Galway United

first_imgGalway United are delighted to announce that Gary Shanahan and Jesse Devers have signed new contracts with the club.The attacking duo have signed deals until the end of the 2017 SSE Airtricity League season.Shanahan, 23, has been a mainstay for United over the last three seasons. The Newcastle West native has made 106 appearances, bagging 16 goals from midfield.Former Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Devers joined Galway United at the start of the 2016 season, the 19-year-old made 7 appearances for the Tribesmen’s first team and he finished the season as an important member of Johnny Glynn’s under-19 side, who reached the final of the competition.Shane Keegan’s latest additions bring his squad size to 15 with pre-season on the horizon and the new United boss hailed Shanahan’s re-signing as another important piece of business.“I think Gary is rightly somewhat of a fan favourite. He was almost an ever present in the season just finished and I suppose what any manager would say is that he’s a player that you can absolutely trust.“He runs himself into the ground, if you give him a job, he goes and does it to the letter. He’s just a really solid footballer and he has a fantastic track record as well in terms of avoiding injuries and suspensions.“Gary contributes massively and quite often with a player whose main attributes are their application and work-rate, you then tend to maybe overlook the actual qualities that they bring to the side as well.”Mayo native Devers is a highly rated young talent, who scored 3 goals in 6 games for Johnny Glynn’s under-19 side last season. He will vie with Vinny Faherty, Ronan Murray and Padraic Cunningham for a starting berth in 2017.“Jesse hasn’t really kicked a ball at first team level yet,” Keegan explained.“I’ve sat down with senior players and last year’s coaching staff, everybody is absolutely raving about Jesse, saying what he was doing on the training ground and the potential he has.“People are really saying that this is a player that, given an opportunity, and if he goes and really pushes himself this year, is capable of doing great things.“I’ve said on a number of occasions that I get really excited by throwing young players into the first team if they’ve given me a reason to throw them in. Again, if Jesse performs as I’ve been told he’s been capable of doing, he will find himself in there and it’s up to himself to put his best foot forward.”2017 GALWAY UNITED SQUAD (15): Colm Horgan, Paul Sinnott, Lee Grace, Stephen Folan, Marc Ludden, Gary Shanahan, Alex Byrne, David Cawley, Gavan Holohan, Conor Melody, Kevin Devaney, Vinny Faherty, Ronan Murray, Padraic Cunningham, Jesse Devers.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more
