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

Consultants Highlight Conflicts Between Alaskan Pipelines

first_imgJanak Mayer with Enalytica told the Senate Resources Committee earlier this month that a “backup” pipeline is not the best approach… Mayer: “We think that is a crucial and very, very valid concern and we also think there are very established ways in the industry of dealing with this that are much more established than trying to create a separate project to do so.” Mayer and his partner, Nikos Tsafos, told Senators that the AK LNG Project is making historic progress… Mayer: “In looking at it this time, the thing that has really struck both of us is just how committed all three companies are to this, just how much they’ve committed in terms of the level of spending on the project year after year, in terms of how many people are involved, in terms of executive and management time, in terms of putting the very best people on this, it’s really struck us just how committed the partners are to this project.” Gov. Walker: “Very, very hopeful that the AK LNG is successful and we’re doing everything we can to make sure that is successful but if for any reason one of those four companies step away, we don’t want to be left without another option.” ExxonMobil is managing the AK LNG Project in partnership with ConocoPhillips, BP, and the State of Alaska with TransCanada. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Governor Bill Walker insists his deeper look at the ASAP project won’t jeopardize the mega-AK LNG Project… But two legislative consultants disagree. The consultants worried that the Governor has given the market the impression that he may take the state in a different direction, causing questions about how closely Alaska will work with the industry partners on future decisions.last_img read more

Intermediary says Liverpool player ‘of great value’ would be ‘suitable’ for…

first_imgThe 25-year-old has struggled to showcase his worth at the Merseyside club so far this season, with Jurgen Klopp not keen to rush him in.At the start of this month, we carried a report from Le Parisien, who claimed the player was ‘bored’ at Anfield and has now emerged as a loan target for Paris Saint-Germain in January.Giuseppe Cannella, an intermediary, who earlier admitted that Napoli were previously interested in the player, now claims that Fabinho would excel at AC Milan, if he swapped the Premier League side for San Siro.“You know Fabinho, who was also proposed to Napoli in the past. At Liverpool is playing little, maybe we can see him in Italy in the future?” Cannella told RMC Sport.“In the meantime, Klopp is a bit like Sarri. He used more or less the same players. I would see him very well at Milan, he has quality and strength. He did very well in the Ligue 1 and in the Champions League. He is a player of great value, he would be suitable for Serie A.”Embed from Getty ImagesWhether Milan are interested in Fabinho and whether Liverpool would consider sanctioning his sale is not clear. But if the South American player sees his playing time limited the way it has been, he may begin to get itchy feet.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
