Our research group’s GPS-expert Dr Sean FitzGibbon has custom-designed a small unit that can be easily attached to players during a game or training session. Using these units, we are able to track the continuous movement of individuals throughout a game.
|GPS tracking of a player through the 1st half of an actual match. The players position is noted for particular time intervals, and we have the capacity to track movement chronologically through the match.|
This allows us to measure an individual’s total distance moved throughout a game, average speed and break down their movement into five different categories of exertion: walking, jogging, running, run-sprint, and high intensity sprinting. Thus, we can provide a comprehensive analysis of an individual’s total exertion in a game or a training session.
