Body sensor networks for monitoring performances in sports: A brief overview and some new thoughts

Farook Sattar, AKM Abdul Malek Azad, Md Sarfaraj Sikder, Md Shamsul Arefin


This paper aims to review on body sensor networks (BSNs) for sports from performance monitoring point of view with some new thoughts. The focus of the paper is to show that wearable sensor is more efficient than cameras in measuring sport performance and thereby video data and video based systems can be replaced by wearable sensors. Here, the current state-of-the art in BSNs are mainly introduced relating to sports performance instead of physical activity and health/safety related issues for sports and to the best of our knowledge, this has not been done yet for different types of sports rather than a particular sport. Although the progress in BSN for sports performance is in early stage, the ultimate goal is to develop a complete training/match analysis tool using wearable sensors and various analyses techniques to monitor as well as improve performances in sports.
