The Smart Sports Exercises project has been selected for funding by ZonMw for two years, starting 2018. In the project, new forms of indoor sports training are researched. This is done in a “smart indoor sports space”. The playing field has an interactive floor capable of displaying video and realtime graphics, that is equipped with unobtrusive pressure sensing capabilities. A specially developed training system will offer interactive exercises. Direct feedback will be provided on the actions and performance of individual athletes and the team, and exercises will be adapted to this as the training proceeds. The system will be developed and evaluated together with volleyball teams of different levens, in club training and physical education. The project is coordinated by the University of Twente, and carried out in a joint collaboration with Windesheim University of Applied Sciences, Sportservice Veenendaal, InnoSportLab Sport en Beweeg! and LedGo BV.
Together with 3 other projects, the project is part of the ZonMw research programme Sports and Movement.
