Chennai, Aug 29 (UNI): Researchers at the IIT-Madras have partnered with Inspire Institute of Sports (IIS) at Bellary in Karnataka, to develop a cost-effective and advanced boxing analytics software to increase India’s medals at 2024 Olympics.
Called ‘Smartboxer’, a cost-effective analytic platform, it will use wearable sensors and video cameras to provide performance assessments of boxers on the four key traits that are assessed for scoring in boxing.
It will provide feedback and performance assessments using Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled wearable sensors and video cameras. ‘Smartboxer’ will be deployed to analyse the boxers’ performance at Inspire Institute of Sport.
Based on the feedback from IIS, changes will be incorporated into the ‘Smart boxer’ analytics platform, a release from IIT-M said on Monday. This will enable the software to be effectively used to assist coaches and boxers.
The ‘Smartboxer,’ being developed as a multi-version software by the Center of Excellence for Sports Science and Analytics at IIT Madras, will provide an above par competitive edge to Indian athletes. It will provide feedback and performance assessments using Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled wearable sensors and video cameras.
