This device named as Fight Coach is sensor system that can be inserted into sports gear which will permit fighters to manage evaluate their performance. By tracking the athlete’s hand movement and displaying it in real-time, Fight Coach can help athletes optimize their training. However, the main advantage of this device is that it’s small enough to fit into their equipment without causing much trouble or comfort problem to the athlete. Moreover, it has USB rechargeable battery system along with a wireless system.
The ATMEGA32U4 microcontroller does the major work which is also connected to a RN-41 Bluetooth module for wireless functionality. Motion data, generated by the accelerometer and gyroscope, is obtained by the MCU via i2c, and the MCU then transmits that data to a Bluetooth module via UART, which in turn gets displayed and processed on a matlab terminal. It also has the ability to display athlete’s damage output along with his defensive performance in real-time. If the athlete wishes he can also log the data generated for further analysis in future. If you are interested to learn more about its functionality, the documentation of the project is available on the project website.
