Smartwatches for Sport Applications

Overview

In this project we - a group of 13 students (electrical engineering) - investigate the usage of so-called smartwatches for sport applications. Our general goal is to get accurate motion information out of the data we can collect through smartwatches. Most smartwatches these days have all kinds of sensors, but especially interesting for our motion analysis are the gyroscopes and accelerometers. With this data we hope to capture how you move and then for example recall what you did or how well you’ve been doing. Every sport needs a different approach, so we’ve split up in teams to optimise what we know best and bring all of our knowledge into the analysis.

Saturday Morning Physics 2018

The DSS team was invited to participate in the last of the "Saturday Morning Physics" (SMP) events in 2018. On December 8th, a Saturday of course, Thorben Kaak, Gerhard Schmidt, and Owe Wisch gave a talk on underwater signal processing. Pupils from all around Schleswig-Holstein were quite interested, especially in the basics of SONAR systems.
