Tracking body motion is crucial for many fitness and health-related applications, including sports performance analysis, physical rehabilitation, and tracking of daily physical activity. In recent years, advancements in wearable technology have made it possible to track body motion in a more accessible and affordable way. One such technology is beacon tracking, which uses small, battery-powered devices to track the position and orientation of objects in real-time. In this article, we will explore the development of a mobile app that leverages beacon tracking technology to track body motion.

How Tracking body motion works:

The beacon tracking device is attached to various points on the user’s body, such as the wrist, ankle, or hip. The device transmits its location and orientation data to a nearby receiver, which can be a smartphone or tablet, using Bluetooth low energy (BLE) communication. The mobile app receives the data from the beacon tracking device and processes it to track the user’s body motion.

The mobile app uses algorithms to estimate the position and orientation of the beacon tracking devices based on the received data. The app then integrates this data to create a 3D model of the user’s body motion in real-time. The app can also store the data for later analysis and provide the user with insights into their physical activity, such as steps taken, calories burned, and the distance traveled.

Sports biomechanics and body motion tracking

Sports biomechanics, as explained by Wikipedia, is physics for sports. It is a quantitative analysis of an athlete’s or sports’ activities. It also involves the analysis of kinematics and kinetics (motion, time, velocity, position and speed).

One of the famous examples of biomechanic analysis is the one we saw in the Tom Cruise starrer, a Motion Pictures movie, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. The very noticeable and breath-holding scene where Benji (Simon Pegg) has to walk through a security check where his movements will be analyzed in-order to grant further access. This was all a part of the scene where Ethan Hunt dives into the tunnel to change the data underwater.

The body motion tracking includes tracking of gait, position, kinetics, speed and relevancy of motion. Motion tracking using beacon tracking device is becoming popular nowadays for monitoring the athlete’s activities.


Beacon tracking device for training your team

It is important to understand certain angles in certain sports. Other factors, moreover, that drive the sportsman’s performance are speed, timing, force and more. It would really be an enticing advancement if the coach could guide the athletes with accurate measurements. And to capture these measurements, we have a beacon tracking device along with an app.

The sports retail companies can provide this enhancement which will be beneficial for the team as well as to the business. A beacon can be placed on any objects like a tennis racket, baseball bat or anywhere in the arena. It not only notifies the user of its presence but also, with proper algorithms fed in an app the screen starts notifying the respective details.

With a simple beacon tracking solution, you can allow the user to track and train on the following:

  • Speed
  • Distance
  • Accelerations / Decelerations
  • Heart Rate
  • Dynamic Stress Load
  • High Metabolic Load Distance
  • Average Metabolic Power
  • Step Balance
