About the CompanySTATSports designs, develops and manufactures its own range of GPS (Global Satellite Positioning) electronics and software products for the elite team sports market and has quickly grown to be Europe’s premier Sports Science service for Soccer, Rugby and the GAA markets. The product set includes electronics and an extensive software system that can provide accurate feedback to coaches on football players’ athletic performance during training and competitive matches. STATSports current offering —the Viper system— is very successful and highly regarded, but it is based on GPS and as such is primarily an outdoor system as good reception of satellite signals is not usually available indoors. This FUSION project will research the architecture of an indoor version of Viper that examines the use of novel wearable sensors to replace the GPS performance information and the use of shared-data / mobile-device model to allow simultaneous usage by a number of coaches in a gym or rehabilitation suite.
