EPFL & Swiss-Ski use magnetic gates & Physilog sensors to track slalom skiers’ performance

EPFL researchers from the LMAM laboratory & coaches from Swiss-Ski have now come up with an innovative way to closely track the skier performance on each section of the slalom course. Thanks to Physilog’s accelerometers and gyroscopes, they measure the skiers’ acceleration and angular speed. This data is used to determine the orientation of different parts of…
