After 17 years at Griffith University, it’s time to hand back my swipe card and explore other opportunities. It’s been tremendous fun developing the sports engineering and technology disciplines (see Griffith’s SABEL research with impact), working with the elite sports industry, related and consumer industries and leading peak professional bodies like the International Sports Engineering Association,… Read More Adieu Griffith
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.
Guest blog by David Rowlands Off to Japan! I was looking forward to catching up with my colleagues and friends in Japan once again. Recently Hugo Espinosa and I presented at the Sports and Human Dynamics Conference 2016 in Yamagata Japan. Whilst it was 38C and humid at home in Brisbane, we were experiencing the cold… Read More Sports And Human Dynamics In Japan
Too many of us know too little about the everyday problems that people with disabilities face in our society – that’s something we want to change – Robert Riener, Director Cybathlon Words cannot express how excited I am for this weekend’s Cybathlon event – held in Zurich on the 8th of October. The Cybathlon is… Read More Man And Machine: The Cybathlon
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.
The 2016 Asia-Pacific Sports Analytics Conference took place recently at the NAB Village. It’s only the second time this conference is held and I have to say it has done really well. The numbers prove it – 865 attendees (according to the Whova app), 33 sessions that ran concurrently in 3 different rooms, 45 Speakers (all experts in their fields) representing… Read More Some Thoughts & Takeaways From #SAC16
