Measurement and information system for monitoring in football training
To support the coaches, we take measurement data from portable mini-sensor nodes on players and generate key indicators for game-relevant information in the sport of football.

For the first time, the combination of inertial sensor technology and position measurement provides answers to questions such as: ‘Which player is under pressing?’ The aim is to improve the performance of both individual players and the team as a whole.
The scientific innovation here is the modelling of performance based on critical success factors and the underlying key indicators. The sensor data is used to identify patterns and determine player actions. The defined key indicators are calculated on the basis of the player’s actions; these determine critical success factors, performance constructs and, ultimately, the player’s performance.
