10am Wed 10th Nov, A Sports Engineering Research Collegiate with A. Prof Yuji Ohgi and CWMA researchers

On behalf of the Centre for Wireless Monitoring and Applications, Sports and Biomedical Engineering programme and in conjunction with the Queensland Academy of Sport, Centre of Excellence for Applied Sports Science Technology in Sport Programme. I would like to invite you to a morning of research talks headed by guest speaker A. Prof Yuji Ohgi from Keio University, Japan together with centre researchers.

Sports Engineering Research Collegiate
Wed 10th Nov
10am -12ish
N13_0.32 (go through Environment Learning Centre)

Griffith University
Nathan Campus

Speakers
Yuji Ohgi – Miniature sensors for sports monitoring. Prof Ohgi developed one of the first wearable swimming inertial sensor systems, the first single chip inertial monitoring system and will give us a look at his latest system and discuss applications. An honorary researcher in the Centre we have enjoyed a growing collaboration including an exchange of academic staff, postgraduates and IAP students with him for a number of years.

Prof Ohgi will be followed by some ‘snapshot’ talks by centre researchers

Jono Neville – AFL and performance monitoring. Most teams today in AFL use wearable sensors to manage training and competitive workload of players. Jono’s work aims to improve the treatment of acquired data in conjunction with the Brisbane Lions
Andy Stamm – Inertial navigation for swimming performance monitoring. Considered the holy grail in swimming monitoring, how to make a wearable position and velocity sensor he has made considerable progress. Research supported by the QAS under an ARC linkage
Jason Harding – Performance monitoring of Snowboard half pipes. One the back of his research Jason ran the worlds first electronically judged snowboard competition as a satellite event to world cup competition. Research supported by the AIS and OWIA
David Rowlands – iPhone in sports monitoring. More than just a phone, these devices are a complete wireless inertial monitoring solution
Amin Ahmadi – Tennis monitoring. Using wearable sensors an on court tennis system has been developed that provides biomechanical information previously only available in the lab. Researched supported by the QAS
Andrew Wixted – Illegal Arm action in Cricket. Funded by the ICC and Cricket Australia this project is developing a wearable solution to one of crickets most controversial subjects with impressive early results

You are welcome to join us afterwards for lunch at the Enternet cafe (own cost)
