Abstract

We developed a video-based analysis system to monitor and analyze performance in technical sports, the CoachCockPit. The CoachCockPit captures footage of a performance, stores and presents it instantly. Footage can automatically be analyzed and fed back. We show how daily training activity of trampolinists is monitored and parameters like number of routines, number of jumps per routine, or jump height, can be extracted. Over weeks and month these parameters display trends that provide information about training progress in relation to the aimed-for training results. Overtraining and stress fractures are crucial risk factors in trampoline jumping. The deployment of the CoachCockPit in trampoline jumping will, in the future, help to predict these risk factors at an early stage.
