Yesterday I got out of SABEL Labs and jumped (literally) in front of the TV cameras – filming for an upcoming segment on SCOPE TV. The segment was showing off our new Virtual Reality track cycling simulator, which we’ve made in conjunction with the Griffith University IDEA LAB. The simulator is modelled off… Read More Unveiling The VR Cycling Simulator: SCOPE TV
For us here at SABEL our research partnerships are very important, not only for sharing ideas and resources but to also feel a part of a connected tribe. On Monday I headed down to the northern New South Wales town of Lismore to touch base with sports science researcher Jamie Hetherington. We met at a… Read More Southern Cross University And The Liverpool Football Club Academy Visit.

So after a few weeks break from the Olympics the sporting world’s attention turns back to Rio for the Paralympics. Athletes with disabilities have a beautiful synergism with the technology that enables them to compete. From a sports tech perspective, this means the athletes are working closely with sports engineers to create adaptive technology to… Read More Engineering The Paralympics 2016
Today the Olympics in Rio comes to a close so we thought it would be a good opportunity to point out a few stories showing off the back office sport tech contributions that led to a few medals that we know about. Last year ISEA student member Brock Laschowski won the ISEA student prize. Since… Read More The Engineering Olympics
Now all the SABEL’ers are back from overseas we’ve had a second to take a breath and reflect about our time in Delft at the biannual International Sports Engineering Conference – The Engineering of Sport . What a cracking conference it was! Over 300 delegates with great representation from both industry and academia from all… Read More Recapping ISEA 2016 – The Engineering Sport 11.
We here at SABEL believe the adage that if you have only a hammer the only problems you can solve are with nails holds very true to sports engineering. In sport we face so many different engineering problems, therefore, we see working in multidisciplinary teams as vital for success. For us, it’s pretty simple –… Read More Celebrating Sports Engineering Diversity Part 1: Sports Simulation
