This is a post about some big changes ahead for Sports Technology Blog and a bit of reminiscing about the past. Starting out as a platform for sharing sports engineering research, it has slowly stepped into the commercial space and now it is becoming the trusted source of info for all emerging sports and health tech products. #watchthisspace
Here’s a little piece from SABEL Labs, NT on wearable technology (Looking good Jim!). Find out about postgraduate opportunities in sport, cattle monitoring and urban transport too.

Congratulations to Abbas Meamarbashi and colleagues on the founding of the Journal of Advanced Sports Technology, servicing the middle east as well as the international community, it so exciting to see it developing everywhere. Sports Technology really has exploded in the past decade becoming a mainstream role in many sporting organisations and popular through consumer… Read More A New Journal, The Rise And Rise Of Sports Technology
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
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
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 are super excited to announce the ISEA2018 Sports Engineering conference will be hosted in Brisbane Australia. Griffith University and SABEL Labs welcome you to the 12th Biennial conference on the Engineering of Sport on behalf of the International Sports Engineering Association (ISEA) in Brisbane, Australia from 26 to 28 March 2018 together with Australian Sports Technologies Network.… Read More Announcing ISEA2018 – The Engineering Of Sport, Brisbane Australia
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
